  1. The fee for a national criminal history check is reduced if you:
    • have no criminal history, and
    • hold a current Blue Card issued by the Public Safety Business Agency (previously the Queensland Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian), and
    • provide this information on the application.

    If a further national criminal history check is required, you will need to pay an additional fee before your application will be processed.

  2. A Recent Qld graduate is an applicant who:
    • is currently completing an initial teacher education program approved or accredited by the QCT at a Queensland higher education institution, or
    • has completed such a program no more than two years prior to the date their application is submitted to the QCT.

Fees for registered teachers

Annual and late fees

An annual fee is payable every year to maintain your teacher registration.

A fee notice will be sent to you approximately eight weeks before your registration end date. If you do not pay your fee by the due date, a late fee will be incurred.

If you do not pay the annual fee and the late fee by the due date on your final reminder notice, the QCT is required to cancel your registration and remove your name from the Register of Teachers. If you still wish to teach in Queensland, you will need to reapply for registration.

Payment options

Renewal and Restoration fees

Teachers with full registration need to renew their registration every five years. The fee for renewal is the annual fee, which must be paid before the registration end date. (Completion of a renewal form is also required.)

There is no late fee applicable at the end of the five year period of full registration. If you do not pay the annual fee by your full registration end date, you will have to pay the annual fee PLUS a restoration fee. The restoration period is for three months immediately following your full registration end date.

Your full registration will end if you do not renew or restore it. If you wish to teach in Queensland you will need to reapply for registration.
