Leadership of the FORUM was in parliament of the Republic yesterday to engage with the committee of Parliament  tasked to review the Legislative Instrument (LI) of the NTC and reports as follows:

1. NTC  Board and the Minister has not developed the LI required of it by the ACT 1023.

(see section 83 of the Act. Page 43.)

2. It was also confirmed that as at the beginning of the year  the NTC had lost its  mandate to carry out any form of  activity legally by virtue of it’s failure to develop the required LI. ( This LI when developed by NTC and approved by The Parliament of Ghana, would spell out the modus operandi of the NTC and regulations for effective implementation of the Act. ie, Licence fees, registration requirements, Licensure Examination among others.( see section 83 page 43)

3.That The registration of the teacher shall lead to the acquisition of license
