Retrospective vetting deadline extended

Thursday 04 January 2018

Schools are required to ensure that all teachers have been vetted via the Teaching Council/ National Vetting Bureau process by the new extended deadline of 30 April 2018. Having previously been approved as vetted at school level is not adequate for maintaining Teaching Council registration.

Teachers who have not yet been vetted should apply for vetting immediately as the process takes a minimum of two weeks. Teachers who have applied for vetting should check their status in order to ensure all relevant documentation and information has been received (this should include checking their emails for links to the National Vetting Bureau).
