NTC has been assigned the responsibility of organizing the Ghana Teacher Prize (GTP) since 2018 by the Ministry of Education. GTP was known as Best Teacher Awards until 2018 when it was rebranded to meet global standards.

 

The rebranding has become necessary to enable the programme to conform to the standards of the Global Teacher Prize which started in the year 2014.

Dr. Benedict Osei-Owusu, a member of the governing board of NTC on behalf of the Registrar, Dr. Christian Addai-Poku welcomed the committee and officially opened the session. In his welcome address, he stated that GTP aims to honour outstanding teachers for their exemplary performance and ground-breaking work that has affected and transformed the lives of students under their care, the school and the community. It further serves as a source of motivation for other teachers.

 

He further gave the background to the introduction of the new category by making reference to this year’s GTP grand durbar organized at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Tamale. “During the celebration, the Minister for Education recommended that the award scheme be extended to higher education teachers.

 

The Council has therefore decided to extend it to Tutors of Colleges of Education in the 2023 edition and possibly, scale it up to cover the lecturers at the Universities in the future”.

He announced that the prize attached to the new category will be a 4×4 pick-up. This category will initially be sponsored by Transforming Teaching, Education & Learning, T-TEL.
