FAQ: Check that your registration is in order

07 NOVEMBER 2018

What happens if I don’t complete my annual registration tasks?

If you do not login to your MyVIT account and complete all annual maintenance tasks (including payment) due by 31 December your name will be removed from the register, either by expiry or suspension.

If your registration is suspended, or you are removed from the register, you will not be able to undertake the duties of a teacher / early childhood teacher; it is an offence to teach in a Victorian school or early childhood service without registration. Some exceptions may apply for early childhood teaching.

What does it mean to have my registration suspended?

If you have an expiry date later than 31 December 2018 and fail to complete your annual registration tasks, you will be suspended from teaching in Victoria.

This could apply to you if you hold Permission to Teach (PTT), provisional registration or have been granted full registration in the last year.

If you are suspended, you can apply to have the suspension revoked if you complete the outstanding task(s) and provide a satisfactory written explanation for your failure to complete these by the due date.

What does it mean if my registration expires?

If you have an expiry date before 31 December 2018 and fail to complete your annual registration tasks, your registration will expire and you will be removed from the register.

If you have been removed from the register and you wish to resume teaching you will need to re-apply for registration and meet all the current registration requirements.

What does it mean if my CRC is incomplete?

After you completed your online criminal record check consent form, you were sent a ‘Name Confirmation Form’ by email. You need to follow the instructions on this email and provide the required documents.

If the correct completed documents are not received by 31 December 2018, your name will be removed from the register.

If you have never had a change of name and believe the email was sent in error, please contact us to avoid being removed from the register.

What if I don’t want to renew my registration?

If you no longer wish to be a registered teacher / early childhood teacher, please complete the notification of registration cessation form
