Support your provisionally registered ECTs to move to full registration

Funding for services to support staff moving to full registration

Employers of provisionally registered early childhood teachers can access funding from the Department of Education to support teachers to move to full registration. 

Approved providers of early childhood services can apply for a one-off payment of $2,872 (excluding GST) per eligible provisionally registered teacher (PRT).

The funding can be used to

  • provide paid time release, travel or accommodation expenses for both the PRT and a mentor to work with each other
  • employ a casual relief teacher to back-fill the PRT and/or the mentor
  • support the PRT to undertake formal professional learning
  • provide professional development opportunities such as attendance at conferences, workshops, seminars, online courses, subscriptions to teacher magazines/journals/research articles and teacher textbook resources on particular topics.

Applications will open in March 2024.
