Students training to become teachers to be tracked.

Students training to become teachers in Zambia will now be tracked to assess their performance by the Teaching Council of Zambia.
Teaching Council of Zambia Registrar, Ebby Mubanga further says that no student will be allowed to do teaching practice if they do not have a teaching practice certificate.
Speaking to Breeze News this morning, Mr. Mubanga says that the teaching council wants the teaching profession to be properly regulated starting from training to practicing levels.
These strict regulations have also been extended to practising teachers, who will not be allowed to work without a practicing certificate from Teaching Council of Zambia.
Mr. Mubanga says that the council expects to register 130,000 teachers from across the country before the end of next year.
Meanwhile expatriates wishing to work in Zambia will not be allowed to work in the country without getting approval from the Teaching Council of Zambia.
One of the councillors from Teaching Council of Zambia Stanley Muhango says that the council will have to ascertain qualifications of expatriate teachers before they can be allowed to work.
And Mr. Muhango says the Teaching Council of Zambia has enough powers to deal with anyone who will be found teaching without a practising certificate.
He stated that the Teaching Council of Zambia was formed through the Teaching Council Act of 2013, which gives it powers to regulate the teaching profession, register teachers and license them to operate.
Mr. Muhango also revealed that the council hopes to start the registration process by December this year, since all statutory instruments have been drafted and are currently waiting to be passed through the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Education.
