Guide to applying for Vetting or Re-vetting

The Teaching Council liaises with the National Vetting Bureau, on behalf of teachers in Ireland, for vetting clearance including criminal record disclosures (if applicable). The National Vetting Bureau application process is now online. The steps applicants must follow are explained below. Please follow each step carefully to ensure that your application is processed smoothly.

Vetting involves a 2-stage application process. Stage 1 of the process varies depending on whether you are an applicant for registration or an already registered teacher.
