Once your qualifications have been assessed as meeting the Board’s requirements for teacher registration, you can lodge an Application form for Teacher Registration.

Under mutual recognition you are not required to provide evidence that you have completed the full day mandatory notification training (responding to abuse and neglect training) prior to finalisation of your registration.  However, you may be required to complete this training prior to teaching children. This relates to an employment requirement. 

In addition, before you renew your registration in South Australia a correctly certified copy of the full day training will be required.  You can post this certificate in to us on completion of your course.
