Employers should check the Register of Teachers when engaging a teacher.
The Register of Teachers contains details of registered teachers or persons who hold permission to teach (PTT) in Queensland. The register also includes details of teachers whose registration or PTT has been suspended or where their registration or PTT has been cancelled for disciplinary reasons within the last three years. The QCT continually updates the Register of Teachers to show a person’s registration status. If a teacher does not appear on the Register of Teachers employers should ask to see an original current Registration Certificate issued by the QCT or Contact the QCT. The Registration Certificate shows a teacher’s current registration status and any associated conditions imposed on the teacher’s registration.
The register is not intended to be used for the purposes of any other child-related employment.
If you have any questions in relation to the registration status of a teacher please contact the QCT.
