Schedule of Fees 2021-2022
Teacher registration is important in maintaining professional standing and public confidence in the teaching profession, particularly in the safety of teachers to work with children.
Registration requirements, such as qualifications, provisional registration, renewal, professional development, adherence to professional standards and Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Checks all contribute to the professionalism of Victoria’s teachers.
The VIT’s annual registration fees continue to be among the lowest across Australia (awaiting final calculation), and may be tax-deductible.
