Important booking information

  • You will need your 6 digit VIT registration number to book. Please note: a VIT registration number is not the same as a TO number.
  • If your preferred seminar is at capacity, you will have the option to join the waitlist for that seminar. If you wish to book a different seminar, please cancel your registration from the waitlist and choose a new date. Due to high demand teachers can only book one PRT seminar, so you will need to cancel one booking before making a new booking.

Employer Portal

Employer webinars

As ‘co-regulators’ of the teaching profession, employers are required to ensure their teachers hold valid teacher registration. This is critical in maintaining professional status and public confidence in the profession and providing for the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.

Following the launch of the Employer Pack, the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) has developed a series of educational webinars to assist employers in understanding the importance of teacher registration and their regulatory obligations as an employer.

Designed for principals, assistant principals, school leaders, early childhood managers and authorised delegates, the webinars explore how to manage and monitor teacher registration, as well as guide staff through the registration process.

The webinars will cover

  • who we are, what we do and the importance of teacher registration
  • an employer’s role as a co-regulator
  • teacher registration and permission to teach (PTT)
  • monitoring teacher registration using the Employer portal
  • conduct and suitability
  • employer resources and support.

The webinars will help to support employers in meeting their regulatory obligations and reduce the risk of unregistered teaching practice.
