Nationally consistent registration of teachers

Your first point of contact for any questions regarding teacher registration will be the teacher regulatory authority in your state or territory.

The teacher regulatory authorities are responsible for nationally consistent teacher registration in Australia, as endorsed by Education Ministers in 2011. The national approach comprises various elements and seeks to benefit teachers by:

  • improving the mobility of teachers throughout the nation
  • requiring the same standards and consistent processes to achieve full registration
  • ensuring that registration is part of a wider framework for teachers’ career progression and professional learning guided by the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
