To ensure only registered teachers are teaching in South Australian schools and early childhood services, the Board undertakes an annual Compliance Audit of all sites.
The audit was conducted in February 2021.
Of the 280 teachers who were followed up as part of the audit,eight teachers were identified as working at an education site unregistered.
It was determined that the incidents were oversights. One was identified as teaching with expired registration, two were early childhood teachers teaching with an expired special authority to teach and five were early childhood teachers teaching unregistered.
The employers were each issued with a warning letter explaining their obligations under the Act.
