Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN is an agency of the Federal Ministry of Education of Nigeria is an Independent government Regulatory council established under the Constitution of Nigeria to manage human resource within the education sector.

It is here where the registration of new teachers takes place. It was established by the TRCN Decree N0. 31 of 1993 (now TRCN Act CAP T3 of 2004). The major mandates are the regulation and control of the Teaching Profession at all levels of the Nigerian Education system, both in the public and private sectors.

The work of the Teachers regulatory Council of Nigeria is :

  • Securing in accordance with the provisions of this Act the establishment and

maintenance of a register of teachers and the publication from time to time of the lists of those persons;

  • Regulating and controlling the teaching profession (in this Act referred to as "the profession") in all its aspects and ramifications;
  • Classifying from time to time members of the teaching profession according to their level of training and qualification;
  • Performing through the Council established under this Act the functions conferred on it by this Act.
  • The Council has perpetual succession and a common seal which shall be kept in such custody as the Council may, from time to time, authorise.
