PNG Education Department registering Teachers nationwide

PNG Education Department is embarking on a project to register all its staff with a national identification card and birth certificate.

Chairman of the Teacher NID Registration Project, Andrew Angobe, says the project follows a National Executive Council decision and is line with the Civil Registry Act 1963.

Under the directive, teachers have to be registered by March.

Mr Angobe says the NID project is vital to get rid of ghost names and malpractice's in the department.

School inspectors are being recalled for this project and are expected at the registration venues to verify and witness the teacher registration.

Official documents such as teacher appointments list for 2018 and 2019 and the master position register will be used to confirm the status of teachers when they register.

Calls have been made to teachers in other provinces to register once the NID mobile registration team arrives at their location in the coming weeks.

Meantime, in the National Capital District, over a hundred teachers have already registered for the national identification cards and birth certificates.

The registration process is underway at the Education Institute Hall.

Basic Education Inspector, Idau Negesa, says teachers in the capital city are responding well to the public announcements, with more expected to be registered in the coming weeks.

There are also calls for teachers in Central Province who are on holiday in Port Moresby to also register before the academic year starts.
