The National Teaching Council (NTC) has opened the application portal for the 2023 Ghana Teacher Prize formally known as the National Best Teachers Awards.
The award is meant to honour the hardworking staff of the Ghana Education Service who are in active Service.




The Prize is open to all professionally trained and licensed teachers currently working at the pre-tertiary education space (both public and private) and has been teaching for not less than five (5) years.

Selection Criteria

Applications for the Ghana Teacher Prize will be judged based on a rigorous set of criteria to select a teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession. The final judging committee will look for evidence of:

1. Recognition of a teacher’s achievements in the classroom and beyond from learners, colleagues, heads of schools or members of the wider community.
For example, through local/national awards and certificates.


2. Employ innovative and effective instructional practices that are replicable and scalable. For example, through the innovative use of technology or non-typical instructional techniques that can be replicated in other classrooms.


3. Achieving demonstrable student learning outcomes in the classroom. For example, through the improvement of student grades and attendance/behaviour; students become achievers in the world of work.


4. Ensuring learners receive value-based education that promotes global citizenship (different religions, cultures, and nationalities, linking up with schools in other parts of the community/ country, promoting exchange programs, excursion)


5. Achievements in the community beyond the classroom that provide unique and distinguished models of excellence for the teaching profession and others.
For example, recognition through the media, community awards, talks, seminars and membership of local organizations. How do you bring the community into your classroom?


6. Contribution to teaching and the teaching profession: Public debates, research activities, writing articles, blogs, media participation, social media campaigns, events or conferences.


7. Professional Competence: This category of assessment includes academic/professional qualifications, workshops and seminars, provision of in-service training, and evidence of quality delivery of service. The staff should be well informed, especially about educational policies and issues.


8. Personality Factors: This includes the social, moral and emotional, positive manifestations and role modelling to staff, students, and community.


9. Innovations and creativity: This includes new ways and methods of teaching and the use of technology and coping with work in an era of a pandemic. The teacher sets realistic expectations and demonstrates problem-solving abilities.
