Teacher registration ensures a minimum quality standard is applied to all teachers entering or currently teaching in South Australia. Registration verifies you as a qualified teaching professional. For employment purposes, all graduates, overseas trained and currently working teachers are required by law to be registered by the Teachers Registration Board.
High quality, effective teaching has a powerful impact, not only on student learning and outcomes, but also on a teacher's professional integrity. It is, therefore, vital that teachers actively engage in ongoing professional learning that reflects their integrity as professionals, and their commitment to teaching and personal growth.
Teaching is a dynamic and challenging profession. Teachers have a professional obligation to develop and maintain professional relationships with a diverse range of learners, communicate with parents, act ethically, promote positive values and maintain and raise professional standards.
