The Teaching Council has begun the process of retrospective vetting. This means that all teachers who were registered before 2007 and who are not vetted must now be vetted. The requirement to be vetted for both employment and registration purposes is provided for in law, under the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012-2016 and the Teaching Council Act 2001-2015.
Letters are being issued to teachers for retrospective vetting on a phased basis. ASTI members are advised to apply for vetting when contacted and requested by the Teaching Council, in order for Teaching Council registration to be renewed.
