Don’t forget it’s registration time

4 SEPTEMBER 2018

This year we have introduced paperless invoices, which you would have received via your nominated email address.

If you haven’t seen this email don’t worry, simply log in to your MyVIT account and complete your registration tasks online.

Registration cards may take up to 20 working days during peak renewal period. If your name appears on the register, you are registered and able to work. You don’t need your card to teach.

What do I do if I haven't completed my annual tasks?

You will need to complete these tasks by 31 December.

Please note: the MyVIT portal is not available until 10am 4 October due to reconciliation of pre-30 September renewal tasks. You will be able to complete your renewal tasks until 31 December as normal. Please check back after 4 October.

If your name appears on the register, you are registered and able to work. You don’t need your card to teach.

If you did not pay your annual registration fee by 30 September, you will be charged a late processing fee.

We receive a high volume of enquiries during the registration period, so it’s best to contact us sooner rather than later if you require any assistance.

Cessation of registration

If you are registered as a teacher and / or an early childhood teacher, and no longer wish to teach in one or both divisions, complete the Cessation of registration form. Please note that once your registration has ceased, you will no longer be allowed to teach in Victoria.

Keep your details current

To ensure you receive all correspondence from VIT, it's important that you keep your details current through your MyVIT account.

Under section 2.6.26AB, teachers must notify VIT in writing of the name of any school at which the teacher is employed within 30 days of commencing or ceasing their employment.

Once all requirements for the renewal of registration have been met, your new 2019 registration card may take up to 15 business days to be received.
