The quickest and easiest way to check your registration status is by searching the public register. Simply type in your name or registration number, and if your name appears, you are lawfully allowed to teach.
A registered teacher doesn't need to be in possession of their registration card to prove they are registered to teach. The public register displays all the necessary details to confirm your registration, such as your name, registration number, initial registration date and expiry date.
If you have recently applied or renewed your registration and your school has asked for your card as proof of registration, but you're waiting for it to arrive, you can advise them to check the register. Its a lot faster and can provide peace of mind in real time.
If your name does not appear on the register, you are not registered or permitted to teach. If you're unsure why your name does not appear, please contact us for more information.
Sustainable registration cards
We've listened to your feedback and recognise that we need to reduce our carbon footprint.
We will be phasing out plastic registration cards in favour of more environmentally friendly cards, with the aim of moving to e-cards in the future.
Planning for the next phase of registration cards is underway and we will provide you with more information in the coming months.
