11 DECEMBER 2018
Our Customer Service Centre is currently experiencing a high volume of calls and as a result you may experience increased wait times. The following information will assist you with common enquiries you may have about your teacher registration or current application status.
Registering as a new graduate
If you have recently graduated, you will need to register with us before you can teach at any Victorian school or be employed as a registered early childhood teacher in Victoria. More information on registering as a graduate, including timelines for end-of-year graduates, can be found here.
If you have already lodged an application for registration as a graduate, please check the ‘tasks’ section of your MyVIT account for anything outstanding.
Literacy and Numeracy Test
The new Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) policy comes into effect on 1 January 2019. If you have already submitted an application, but have not successfully completed the LANTITE test, your application will not be considered for approval until week commencing 14 January 2019. More information on the LANTITE test can be found here.
We are currently busy processing all registration applications for teachers to start in Term 1, 2019. If you have lodged an application for registration, including Mutual Recognition or Permission to Teach, or a reapplication for provisional registration, VIT will contact you via your nominated email address if we require further information.
Please note that reapplications for provisional registration are processed in the order of expiry, not receipt. If any further information is needed VIT will email you near your approval expiry date (as listed on the public register).
Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check
As part of an application for registration, VIT must run a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) which takes up to 20 business days to return. More information on NCCHC can be found here.
If your registration has been suspended and your name has been removed from the register (because you did not complete your annual maintenance tasks by 31 December), you can revoke your registration from Monday 7 January. If your registration has expired and your name has been removed from the register, you can reapply via your MyVIT account. More information on what it means to have your registration suspended or expired can be found here.
