The Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ) launched the first phase of the issuance of teacher registration certificates in January 2018 and has since delivered the certificates to all the districts in Zambia. Teachers are expected to collect their certificates from the District Education Board Secretaries Offices (DEBS) upon producing their official identity cards. Teachers in-service who have not yet registered are expected to do so by 31st March, 2018.

It is also important to note that, the TCZ has started receiving applications for Practicing Certificates. Please take note that no teacher will be allowed to work in any Zambian school, whether public or private without a practicing certificate after the issuance of these documents. The due date for applying for practicing certificates is 31st May, 2018. The application for the practicing certificates can be done online, or by physical submission of ‘hard copy’ application forms to the DEBS offices. The applications will be processed upon payment of the prescribed fees for the practicing certificates. Payments can be made through ZANACO and NATSAVE in the respective districts.

    I have not received my registration certificate despite having a TCZ number.
    I tried to check with the register in Masaiti, but I did not appear in the register. What can I do?

    I need help. I registered as Primary school teacher, but now I have acquired a degree in Guidance and Counselling. So when applying for certificate, what should I do in order to be captured as a Guidance Counsellor?

    Is it an IT technical issue? If this registration is public domain, why should I receive prompt that I have no Permission to access certificates, yet I just want to subscribe?
    Who created this database? It has a lot of errors! Was it tried and tested?
    I would suggest it gets decommissioned for modification and further improvement before it is rolled out.
