The Teaching Council is moving to a new and enhanced MyRegistration portal, from 14 October 2021.
This will bring enhanced services and greater convenience for registered teachers, who will be able to access and manage registration information 24/7 online.
The current online facilities will be improved to include online submission of applications for registration, extension requests for conditional registration, adding additional subjects/qualifications, and completion of the Droichead induction framework.
To enable the final technical aspects of the switchover to the new system, registration related processes including the current online MyRegistration portal will be unavailable from 4 October 2021. All registration related processes will recommence on 14 October 2021 on the new MyRegistration portal.
Applications received up to 4 October 2021 will continue to be processed. All applications received after this date will be returned to the applicant with instructions on how to apply via the new MyRegistration portal on 14 October 2021.
Teachers who were requested to apply for re-vetting, are advised to do so before 4 October 2021 or wait until 14 October 2021 and apply via the new MyRegistration portal. From 14 October teachers must activate their new MyRegistration account to apply for re-vetting.
During the switchover to the new MyRegistration please be assured that no teacher will be removed from the Register for non-compliance with the re-vetting requirement.
Any newly qualified teacher (NQT) who wishes to commence Droichead can make an application up until 4 October 2021 or wait until 14 October 2021 and apply via the new MyRegistration. From 14 October 2021 NQTs will have to activate their new MyRegistration account to apply for Droichead. In the exceptional circumstance that an NQT is short on time as they could not apply during the system switchover, they can request to have their application date backdated. Please note that backdating prior to the 4 October will not be possible.
Teachers who are due to renew their registrations are advised to do so in advance of 4 October 2021 or wait until 14 October 2021, when the updated online payment service will be available. Please note that all future payments will be online via the new MyRegistration portal. We will no longer be accepting cheques or applications by post.
Please be assured that no teacher will be removed from the Register for non-payment during the switchover period.
These changes will enable the Council to provide a faster, more efficient, and easier to use service for over 111,000 teachers currently on the register, and future registrants.
We will be contacting all registered teachers and keeping them updated.
As we transition to the new MyRegistration portal we kindly ask that you bear with us while we implement this major change to our IT system.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
I am a registered teacher, what do I need to do?
- From 14 October 2021 onwards, registered teachers will be contacted by email and asked to activate their personal MyRegistration accounts on the new portal. This should be done without delay, ensuring you can continue to access your registration information and use the new streamlined services.
- During the activation process, you will need to have an email address unique to you, i.e., it can't be a shared email with another registered teacher or with anyone else.
- From October onwards, re-vetting and registration renewal processes will only be available online - so it will be essential to have an active account.
