About Teaching Council of Zambia – TCZ

The Teaching Council of Zambia – TCZ is a statutory body under the Ministry of Education and Teaching Service Commission (TSC) with the mandate to regulate teacher, the practice and professional conduct and provides for the regulation and accreditation of colleges of education.

In view of the above, the council would like to commend all the teachers that are complaint with the application and renewal of the Practicing Certificate (License) which is in accordance with section 26 of the Teaching Profession Act No. 5 of 2013.

Going forward, as the Registration, Practicing License application and renewal process continues, we advise our teachers to use ZANACO Bill Master or ZANACO Express with Bill Master as this is most efficient.

TCZ Registration, Practicing License application and renewal process are being done online via TCZ Portal which is more efficient and effective.
