National Review of Teacher Registration
The National Review of Teacher Registration, conducted earlier this year, examined teacher registration in Australia to ensure processes are nationally consistent, rigorous and focused on teacher quality. The Review found that since 2011, significant progress has been made across all jurisdictions in implementing the National Framework for Teacher Registration.
During the Review, the Panel explored three key areas:
  1. Improving and reinforcing teacher quality.
  2. Strengthening children's safety.
  3. Streamlining teacher registration processes.
The final report, outlining all 17 recommendations to strengthen teacher registration, is now available to read on the AITSL website here.
