Making a Complaint

Complaints made to the Board by members of the public regarding the conduct, capacity or competence of teachers and unregistered persons granted a Special Authority to Teach are managed in accordance with the Board’s Policy for Managing Complaints/Reports about Teachers.

To make a notification to the Teachers Registration Board (the Board) regarding the conduct or capacity of a registered teacher the complainant will be required to submit a written report under confidential cover addressed to the Registrar identifying the teacher against whom the complaint is made and any information regarding the nature and circumstances of the complaint. Any relevant documentation containing supporting evidence should also be included.

The Board will usually notify the teacher that a complaint has been made about them. However, the Board may delay advising the teacher about a complaint in certain circumstances.​​
