Every teacher requires a National Vetting Bureau (NVB) Disclosure. This may be for
- registration with the Teaching Council
- for renewal of registration (re-vetting)
- for new employment in a school.
Teachers applying for registration are required to be vetted as part of the requisite to be a fit and proper person to be admitted to the register as set out in the Teaching Council Acts 2001 to 2015 (as amended) under section 31(5A) and (5B), and section 9.1(b) and section 13 of the Teaching Council [Registration] Regulations 2016.
Renewal of Registration Re-vetting
All registered teachers who have been vetted through the Teaching Council will have been issued with either a Teaching Council GCVU vetting result letter (prior to 29 April 2016) or a National Vetting Bureau Disclosure (after 29 April 2016).
Teachers who hold the older GCVU vetting result, which was issued prior to 29 April 2016, will be required to update their vetting to a NVB Disclosure.
The requirements for teachers applying for vetting for reasons of employment are set out in Department of Education and Skills Circular Letter 0031/2016 and the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016.
