Update on Vetting
The Teaching Council has begun the process of writing to teachers who have not previously been vetted to inform them of the requirement to be vetted. Letters to teachers will issue on a phased basis over the course of this calendar year.
Teachers are advised to apply for vetting when contacted and requested by the Teaching Council in order for registration to be renewed.
Any previously un-vetted teacher who requires a vetting disclosure for the purpose of changing school/employer in the foreseeable future or for the start of the 2017/2018 school year should apply for a vetting disclosure in the normal manner as per Circular 31/2016. These typically include teachers who intend to commence an inter-school job-share; a teacher exchange, sub on career break etc.
