We are still operating: COVID-19

Like most businesses, COVID-19 has impacted the way the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) is conducting business. VIT has been able to maintain delivery of its regulatory functions and keep phone lines open – albeit with some changes to our telephone numbers (as we are working away from the office).

VIT will continue to respond to queries and process teacher registration applications.

New contact numbers

Updated, 22 June 2020

We have reverted back to our standard hotline numbers. To contact VIT, please use the phone numbers below.

  • General enquiries - 1300 888 067
  • Early childhood enquiries - 1300 977 263
  • Principal enquiries - 1300 650 375

VIT has changed its hotline numbers (as it has been unable to continue using the 1300 numbers), however teachers and employers can still contact VIT using the below numbers.

  • Teacher and Early Childhood Teacher enquiries – (03) 8601 6209
  • Principal enquiries – (03) 8601 6210

This will allow VIT to field enquiries, provide basic information and offer a call-back service for more complex cases.

Email is best

VIT encourages teachers to email their applications or queries to vit@vit.vic.edu.au.  Where possible, VIT requests documents are scanned and emailed, rather than sent via post.


VIT reception is currently closed as we are working away from the office. 


The answers to many questions can be found on the website or by reading VIT’s FAQs.
