Why is my registration fee higher than usual?

You are due for your five-yearly Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check, which is required as part of your registration.

Why do I have to pay for a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC)?

Registered teachers are required to undergo a five-yearly Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check in order to maintain their registration.

If your NCCHC was conducted on or before 30 September 2016, you will need to complete a new check and make payment as part of your annual registration tasks this year.
