NTRCA to recruit 54,304 teachers

A total of 54,304 teachers will be appointed to different non-government educational institutions, including schools and colleges, across the country.

The Non-Government Teachers’ Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA) on Monday issued a circular seeking online application against the posts.

Of the total, there are 31,101 posts at school and colleges, 20,996 at Madrasah, technical and business management institutions and 2,207 reserve posts.

The candidates, who received teacher registration certificate and listed in NTRCA combined merit list, can submit their applications through online from April 4 to 12:00am of April 30. The age of the candidates will have to 35 or below it by January 1, 2020. But the age limit will be relaxed for the candidates who received the NTRCA teacher registration certificate before June 6, 2018.

The candidates can submit their applications from the websites www.ntrca.gov.bd and http://www.ntrca.gov.bd and the fee of the application is Tk 100.

 A number of cases were filed by registered teachers with the courts over the appointment process of the NTRCA, resulting in a halt to the recruitment process for two years.

Finally, the NTRCA published the circular as the court recently gave verdict in this regard clearing the way of the recruitment.

Earlier, teachers were used to be appointed at MPO-listed non-government institutions by their managing committees, leaving room for corruption in the recruitment process.

Later, the government introduced the teachers’ registration certificate exam in 2005. Though job seekers were awarded certificates based on the competitive exam, managing committees of educational institutions were mandated to give the final appointment.

Finally, on October 22, 2015, the education ministry introduced the appointment of teachers to non-government institutions on the basis of merit list based on the recommendation of the NTRCA.
