How to apply for (full) registration through your MyVIT account

27 AUGUST 2020

If you are a provisionally registered teacher and ready to apply for (full) registration, you can now apply online through your MyVIT account.

Please note: VIT has made adjustments for teachers who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).

What you need to know

In order to move to (full) registration you will need to

  • have taught for a total of at least 80 days in one or more Australian or New Zealand schools or early childhood (EC) services (this can include teaching in a remote learning context); and
  • provide evidence that you have met the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) at the Proficient Teacher level using VIT’s inquiry approach.

Once you have met with your mentor to ensure you have completed all of the above requirements, you can convene a workplace recommendation panel. A workplace panel meeting can take place face-to-face or via video conferencing.

Who should be in your workplace recommendation panel?

VIT expects the below composition for panels.

School setting Early childhood setting
  • a VIT registered principal (or their delegate)
  • a registered school teacher or early childhood teacher who has completed an EMP or VIT mentor training program
  • a registered school teacher or early childhood teacher colleague nominated by you, who is familiar with your work.
  • a VIT registered early childhood teacher
  • a registered school teacher or early childhood teacher who has completed an EMP or VIT mentor training program
  • a registered school teacher or early childhood teacher colleague nominated by you, who is familiar with your work.

The principal can assume the role of panel chair.

If the education leader in the EC service is a (fully) registered teacher with VIT, they should assume the role of the panel chair.

If the education leader is not a (fully) registered teacher, the VIT trained mentor should assume the role of panel chair.
