If you’re thinking about taking a leave of absence from teaching or you don’t feel you’ll be able to meet the requirements when you renew your registration, non-practising registration is a convenient option that will allow you to transition back into (full) registration with minimal fuss.
A crucial part of the role of all school and early childhood teachers is to respond effectively to children and young people whose safety and wellbeing may be at risk, or who are in need of protection.
All staff working in early childhood settings and schools within Victoria, particularly those with mandatory reporting obligations, are strongly encouraged to regularly undertake and complete online modules.
At VIT we’ve introduced videos and podcasts to provide useful information for initial teacher educaton graduates, teachers and employers about teacher registration. Now for easy access, we’ve collected them all in one place – our new multimedia pages.
If you’re thinking of returning to teach from non-practising registration, you’ll need to follow the correct process – including completing 20 days of teaching and 20 hours of PD within 12 months.
Casual relief or emergency teachers (CRTs) undertake approximately 10-15% of a learner’s education. Many of Victoria’s beginning teachers are working as CRTs; this can limit their opportunities to undertake an inquiry into their practice in order to move to (full) registration.
