Your VIT registration card and the public register

3 JUNE 2019

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. 

Please note: if your name is displayed in red, this means you are non-practising and are unable to undertake the duties of a teacher. 

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.
