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