I’m currently registered as a teacher in VIC, ACT, QLD, WA, NT, TAS, NSW or NZ

If you hold current registration in another state or territory in Australia or New Zealand, you can apply under Mutual Recognition using an Application for Teacher Registration under Mutual Recognition.

A paperclip symbol appears on the application form indicating that further information may be required. Certified copies of your current registration (accreditation in NSW) is required unless it is issued electronically.

All supporting documents must be in English. Documents not in English must be translated by a translator accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Documents not in English and the translation must be lodged with the application form.

A Working with Children Check is now a mandatory requirement for anyone in South Australia who works with children. Find out more about this requirement here.

You will also need to provide payment of the appropriate fees.

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

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
