From 1 September 2019, VIT will change the way it registers and regulates teachers in Victoria. In particular, it will assess certain types of conduct to determine whether a person is suitable to be registered, or to remain registered, as a teacher. These assessments will be in addition to the existing ways in which we assess the suitability of teachers.
These new assessments will more closely align with the way Working With Children Check Victoria (WWCCV) assess whether a person can be issued with a WWC Check that permits them to engage in child related work. These assessments will include considering whether the person has been the subject of any category A offences, category B offences, category C conduct, negative notices and interim negative notices.
