MORE than 200 graduands of The Papua New Guinea Education Institute (PNGEI) have been committed to the Teaching Service Commission as teachers and trainers of trainees.
The ceremony was part of the school’s 54th graduation held in Port Moresby on Thursday.
Standards and curriculum first assistant secretary, Dr Eliakim Apelis said the teaching profession was a living thing and must not be fixed.
“For you graduands the teaching profession grows in the way in which you perform in the classroom. And it is a journey that must grow, evolve and develop with changes,” he said.
He said in many countries teaching profession had grown with changes – social, economic, politic and environmental.
“What is really the role of teaching profession? Firstly, you must comply with the rule of law such as Teaching Service Act, Education Act and government policies.”
He said teacher compliance was the challenge before them which as a profession they must comply with rules and regulations that dictates and requires them to do their work efficiently, effectively and productively.
The teaching profession requires a leadership role and those graduating should see themselves as leaders in their own rights.
“The nature of your job requires you to make decisions and live by examples and be a model to the children and the society,” he said.
He said teacher, ethics, moral and values were the very important aspects of teaching and of the life of a teacher and must be captured well.
