How to complete your annual registration tasks

27 AUGUST 2020

Thank you to all teachers and early childhood teachers for your incredible professionalism and resilience throughout 2020, and especially in meeting the challenge presented by COVID-19.

As we approach September, if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to complete your annual registration tasks. Thank you to the many teachers who have already attended to this.

Teacher registration is important in maintaining professional status and public confidence in the profession to provide for the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.

All teachers would have received their invoice via email and post by now. The due date for completion is 30 September 2020.

COVID-19 adjustments

If you have been impacted by COVID-19 and cannot meet your registration requirements, read about the regulatory decisions we've taken to ease concerns about teacher registration during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes information for provisionally registered teachers moving to (full) registration.

For teachers completing their annual registration tasks, COVID-19 annual registration adjustments have been built into the registration system. If you have been impacted by COVID-19 you will have the opportunity to advise us of your circumstances when you complete your registration tasks.

How to complete your annual registration tasks

To complete your annual registration tasks, log in to your MyVIT account. Your new username is the email address listed on VIT’s system and was provided in your email and paper invoice notification. If this is your first time logging into your MyVIT account, you will need to create a new password by clicking on 'Forgot your password?'

Watch the video below to find out everything you need to know about completing your annual registration tasks.

You will receive an email notification once your registration has been approved, and your expiry date on the public register and in your MyVIT account will be updated.

Registration cards will be issued within 30 business days of your registration tasks being approved, however you don't need a card to prove your registration.
