Provisionally registered CRTs

While the provisional to (full) registration process is the same for all teachers, we understand CRTs may face challenges that are unique to them. To help CRTs and teachers in non-school settings understand how they can move to (full) registration in their context, we’ve developed a CRT Companion Guide.

This guide outlines key tips and information including

  • suggested steps prior to undertaking your inquiry
  • developing an inquiry question
  • identifying a group of learners
  • meeting the standards
  • timeframe for developing your inquiry
  • creating your action plan
  • examples of evidence for more challenging descriptors of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

This guide should be read in conjunction with the Supporting Provisionally Registered Teachers Guide

VIT runs face-to-face and online webinars for provisionally registered teachers, and we encourage CRTs and teachers in non-school settings to attend. In 2018, we will be running three additional webinars specifically tailored to CRTs. Please register your interest by emailing request an online registration form.

You can access examples of evidence of practice from teachers who undertook the provisional to full registration process. These examples may assist you in understanding the end product of the inquiry. 

How you present your evidence is up to you, as long as your evidence is clearly documented. You can use the VIT template, a website, Prezi, PowerPoint or any other format that suits your context.

If you are thinking of undertaking the (full) registration process as a CRT or in a non-school setting, the non-school setting examples may be of particular use.

As part of the full registration process, you will need to provide evidence that you are meeting all 37 descriptors of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) at the Proficient Teacher level. We have developed a CRT evidence guide, which maps examples of CRT practice against each descriptor of the APST, this may help you in understanding how your practice can meet the standards. 

More information on the provisional to (full) registration process, including videos, podcasts and other resources can be found here.
