Your RTT condition checkup

Based on your situation, you must complete the Returning to Teaching (RTT) program mandatory element.

Why am I doing this?

Teachers with an RTT condition have declared they have not met recency of practice (teaching for 100 days) in their previous five-year renewal period. An RTT condition does not imply a reduction in status or credentials as a registered teacher.

The RTT condition simply ensures that teachers who have had a significant absence from teaching (or have had irregular contact with schools) have their knowledge and skills brought up to date.

This helps maintain the integrity of the profession and helps teachers feel more confident as they return.

What else do I need to know?

Completing the mandatory element will satisfy the requirement of the condition if you are teaching 1-19 days per calendar year. It will not remove your RTT condition. You have the option to voluntarily complete the full RTT program in order to have your RTT condition removed.

If you teach 20 days or more in a calendar year, completing the full RTT program becomes compulsory.

You have 12 months from your first day of teaching after your RTT condition was applied to complete the mandatory elements. (This includes relief or contract teaching.)

But what if Iā€™m late?

Complete the mandatory elements immediately and notify us when you have completed it.

You run the risk of your registration not being renewed if you are not complying with your registration condition.
