Provisional registration is granted for a period of two years from the date of approval, with an additional grace period of three months from the teacher’s expiry date.
If you are a teacher reaching the end of your two year provisional registration, you are still permitted to teach throughout your grace period, so long as your name appears on the public register.
During the grace period, your expiry will be listed on the register as a date in the past. This does not mean you aren’t registered. If your name appears on the register, then you are registered and able to teach.
Please note: you do not require a card in order to teach. If your name appears on the register, then you are registered and able to teach.

I submitted a reapplication for provisional registration and I haven’t heard anything about it – what should I do?
To allow you the maximum amount of time on a second or subsequent period of provisional registration, your application will be processed and approved towards the end of your grace period.
We may contact you for further information closer to your application being processed. In the meantime, you do not need to provide anything further.
Once your application has been finalised, your registration card will be sent via mail. These cards typically take between 2-3 weeks to arrive after approval.
