Last December, we told you about the development of our new teacher registration system. It is now up and running, and all teachers registering with VIT for the first time are using the system.
We remain focused on assisting Victorian teachers, early childhood teachers and their employers as we move through the challenging months ahead. As such, we are endeavouring to minimise the impacts of COVID-19 on teachers' registration requirements where possible.
Like most businesses, COVID-19 has impacted the way the Victorian Institute of Teaching 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).
Part of VIT’s role is to investigate the conduct, competence and fitness to teach of registered teachers, and whether a registered teacher’s ability to practice as a teacher or early childhood teacher is seriously affected because of an impairment.
The Victorian Institute of Teaching is committed to improving the registration process for both principals and teachers. Consequently, we are developing a new teacher registration system, named Nexus.
