Depending on the circumstances, a teacher may wish to change their registration type.

Additional grants of provisional registration

If a provisionally registered teacher is unable to apply for (full) registration at the end of their initial two (2) year grant, they may apply for a further grant of provisional registration.

Approval of additional grants of provisional registration is not guaranteed; each further grant is assessed on its individual merits. Teachers will be required to submit detailed information outlining

  • why they have not been able to complete VIT’s Inquiry process and apply for (full) registration
  • how they intend to do this within the next period of provisional registration (if granted)
  • any other exceptional circumstances contributing to their situation.

Visit the Additional grants of provisional registration page to find out more.

Moving from provisional to (full) registration

Teachers who hold provisional registration have two years to move their practice from the graduate to the proficient teacher level of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST). This work is undertaken in collaboration with other experienced (fully) registered teachers who can provide the provisionally registered teacher (PRT) with feedback and support in the development of their practice.

Teachers be able to apply for (full) registration when they can demonstrate that

  • they have taught for at least 80 days in one or more Australian or New Zealand schools / early childhood (EC) services
  • provide evidence that they have met the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) at the Proficient Teacher level using VIT’s Inquiry process.

Visit the Moving to (full) registration page to find out more.

Returning to teaching from non-practising registration

Non-practising teachers must be approved by VIT to return to teaching from non-practising registration prior to undertaking the duties of a teacher in a school or early childhood setting.

Visit the Returning to teaching from non-practising registration page to find out more.

Dual registration

Dual registration is when someone holds both teacher and ECT registration. This means they can teach in both primary / secondary schools and early childhood services.
