Brief History of this content: 

On Sunday (December 31) in a workshop organized at the NTRCA office, the secretary of the organization told this information. Obaidur Rahman.

NTRCA Secretary Obaidur Rahman presented the main article in the workshop held under the chairmanship of NTRCA Chairman (Acting) SM Masudur Rahman. NTRCA Members (Examination Evaluation and Certification) discussed the main article. Md. Abdul Mannan, Member (Education and Standards) Muhammad Noore Alam Siddiqui, Director (Examination Evaluation and Certification) Abdur Rahman.

It is learned that the Non-Government Teachers’ Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA) recommends the appointment of teachers in private educational institutions. A registration test is also organized for this purpose. Certificates are awarded to those who pass the examination. After that, the recruitment circular was published again and the application was accepted. Candidates spend a lot of time in this. Due to various reasons including slow recruitment, it has been abolished and a new commission has been formed. NTRCA has been entrusted with the responsibility of creating the legal framework for the formation of this commission. They drafted the law and submitted it.

If the law is passed, the recruitment of teachers in private institutions will be done on the model of Public Service Commission (PSC). Job aspirants will participate in a direct job test instead of a registration test. NTRCA will then collect the information about the vacant posts and recommend the direct recruitment of the passers.

According to a source of NTRCA, the registration certificate or certification system is going up in private schools-colleges, madrasas and technical institutes. Instead of the certificate, the list of those who passed the examination will be recommended for the appointment of teachers on the pattern of PSC. The law is being amended for this. The name of NTRCA will also change as the certification process is removed.

The source also said that an initiative has been taken to give NTRCA the power to appoint teachers. A draft of the new law incorporating the matter was sent to the Cabinet Division. After reviewing the draft, the Cabinet Department has observed some other parts of the reform. The issue may come up again in the Cabinet after the 12th National Assembly elections.

In this regard, NTRCA Secretary Obaidur Rahman told The Daily Campus, ‘We want to change our activities. But that is not possible under the existing law. A new law is needed for this. An initiative has been taken to frame a law. If the law is passed, teacher registration certificates will not be required. Direct recruitment can be recommended by publishing the notification.

He said, ‘In the 17th teacher registration, many have expired. We are not able to give application opportunities to over age candidates. It is a ministry matter. But if we could have specified the age at the time of publishing the notification then this complication would not have arisen. The age of the candidates could be calculated from the date of publication of the notification. To eliminate these problems, we need to change the law. Appointments like PSC can be recommended once the legal framework is fixed.

According to information, NTRCA was established in 2005. Since 2006, NTRCA has been issuing registration certificates for teacher recruitment. Since 2015, the organization has been recommending the recruitment of teachers in private schools-colleges, madrasas and technical educational institutions of the country. However, the commission will be formed to speed up the recruitment process and bring more transparency. After the establishment of this commission, NTRCA will directly recommend the candidates for appointment.
