Even if you are not currently working as a teacher, you should keep your name on the Register, so that when you are offered a teaching job, you can start as soon as possible. If you let your registration lapse at any time, you will have to re-register at least four months in advance of starting work as a teacher again. This means that a standard registration application form must be completed and you will have to undergo the vetting process of the National Bureau. If a teacher has previously provided relevant qualification transcripts, he/she need not submit them a second time.
Section 30 is a requirement within the Teaching Council Act, 2001 - 2015, that a teacher has to be registered in order to be paid salary from public funds.
