Teaching experience is taken into account

  • in determining your category of registration
  • in considering a standards-based pathway option.

Determination of registration category

Most applicants who meet all eligibility requirements will be granted provisional registration.

If you have completed at least one year (200 days) of teaching in a recognised school in Australia or New Zealand in the five years prior to your application, you may be considered for full registration.

You will need to:

  • provide confirmation of your teaching experience; and
  • demonstrate that you meet the professional standards for full registration by providing a report completed by a school principal.

Information and the relevant report form will be provided during completion of the online application for registration form.

Standards-based pathway

If you have teaching experience but do not have the qualifications required for registration you may be able to apply for registration under a standards-based pathway.

Information is available in Applicants without prescribed qualifications.
