1st October 2018
The Teaching Council has today begun (October 2018) the process of writing to teachers who have GCVU vetting letters to inform them of the requirement to obtain a vetting disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau. An NVB vetting disclosure will be required in order for registration to be renewed.
Letters to teachers will issue on a phased basis and will be according to date of registration. Over 1,300 teachers (primary and post-primary) whose date of registration is in February (2019) will be the first cohort to be contacted by the Teaching Council.
Teachers are advised to apply promptly for re-vetting when contacted and requested by the Teaching Council in order for registration to be renewed.
Any teacher who has a GCVU vetting letter will require a vetting disclosure for the purpose of changing school/employer in the foreseeable future. These teachers should apply for a vetting disclosure in the normal manner as per Circular 31/2016 (pdf). These typically include teachers who intend to change school, sub on career break etc.
