PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 9TH OCTOBER, 2018
*VERIFICATION OF QUALIFICATION OF ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS TO BE SUBMITTED TO TCZ*
The Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ) wishes to inform all prospective clients that from October 2018, all teachers applying for registration will have to ensure that already verified academic and professional qualifications are submitted to TCZ. This means that the applicants will have to go to Examinations Council of Zambia (ECZ), the Universities and Colleges of Education to have their papers verified. For qualifications obtained outside the Country, Zambia Qualifications Authority (ZAQA) must be engaged to facilitate for verification of their qualifications as per standard practice.
Furthermore, applicants will still be required to have all their credentials certified by the Commissioners for Oath as true copies of the original documents.
TCZ wishes all teachers well. We value your commitment to duty and acknowledge your positive response so far.
