    Hi all,

    I have my 189 visa granted (yay!) and I am a qualified teacher with a degree from a UK Uni and over 6 years teaching experience. I am trying to get myself registered with the Teacher Registration Board (TRB) of WA but there is so much conflicting information about which registration I can actually go for! It seems that I cannot get a full registration as I have not taught in Aus yet, but I also cannot go for a limited registration either.

    Does anyone have any experience with registering themselves? I don't want to ask the TRB themselves as they charge over $300 for advice!!!

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Hi you can register with the TRBWA on a non practising registration until you move and work in Australia then you transfer over to a practising one after a few weeks of working over there I believe. Without having a registration it will be difficult to get a job. Hope that helps?

    Hi,

    I went through this a few months ago when I moved over. You have to get non-practicing registration first, this will enable you to start teaching (provided you have applied for a WWCC). When you have completed your first day teaching (even relief work) you send the TRBWA a 'Notice of Teaching' form. One you have taught for a minimum of 100 days you can then apply for Full-registration. If you need any more info. about registration, or teaching here in general, just let me know. Happy to help!

    Good advice here... just be advised that to be registered to teach in Australia in any state, you must have a 4 year degree.

    You apply for the card at the post office - they take your photo - your receipt is proof that you have applied for your card which is then posted out to you.
