Provisional registration reflects achievement of the graduate level of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
People granted provisional registration include:
The initial period of provisional registration is two years from the date on which a person is first registered.
If you do not meet the requirements for full registration before your provisional registration period expires you may apply to extend it once only for a further two years. The QCT will inform you at the appropriate time about how to apply for an extension.
If you still do not meet the requirements for full registration by the end of the extended period you must reapply for provisional registration.
Three months before your provisional registration end date, you can reapply for provisional registration through your myQCT account. If you are currently teaching in a Queensland school, you should complete the reapplication process as early as possible.
If you expect to move to full registration before your end date, you need to start the online provisional to full application process as early as possible through your myQCT account. You should discuss the process and timing of the recommendation report with your Principal or Deputy Principal (or your QCT approved mentor/reviewer). If there is any doubt about completing the provisional to full application process before your provisional registration end date, you should reapply for provisional registration.
The provisional to full application process will continue even if you reapply for provisional registration. Acceptable teaching experience from your previous four years of provisional registration can be used towards the one year (200 days) required for full registration. The experience must have taken place no more than five years prior to the date you apply for full registration.
