If you currently hold an overseas teacher education award, you will need to apply for an Assessment of Qualifications to determine if they meet the minimum prescribed qualifications requirements.

An assessment of overseas teaching qualifications is the first step in the process to determine eligibility for registration as a qualified teacher in South Australia. The assessment of overseas teaching qualifications is completed in accordance with the Board's minimum prescribed qualification requirements for registration as a teacher.

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 the mutual recognition agreement, your qualifications are not assessed. If you wish to have them added to your records held by the Teachers Registration Board in South Australia, you must provide an original or certified copy of your official academic transcript stating the completion/conferral date of the award or share them via My eQuals to qualifications@trb.sa.edu.au

Under mutual recognition, you are not required to provide evidence that you have completed the mandatory notification training prior to finalisation of your registration. However, you may be required to complete this training prior to teaching children and young people. While this is an employment requirement, please provide a certified copy of your certificate(s) once you have completed the course(s) in preparation of renewing your registration in the future. Online certificates do not need to be certified and can be emailed directly to the Board info@trb.sa.edu.au
