Teachers need to check that they have completed all processes for Teacher Registration as soon as possible to ensure they are registered for the commencement of the 2017 school year.

Contrary to some rumours about massive TRB cost hikes, the annual cost of Teacher Registration has risen only $1 since 2015 to $94 and the $50 registration renewal application fee remains the same. The application fee and one year of registration total is $144.

All people who intend working in Tasmanian schools in 2017, including teachers, should by now have applied to the Department of Justice for Working with Vulnerable People (WwVP) Registration. WwVP Registration is also a prerequisite for Teacher Registration. The following link to the DoJ website contains further information: http://www.justice.tas.gov.au/working_with_children
