Digitary allows teachers to view and share their vetting disclosure (result document) electronically with current and prospective school employers.

It replaces the Teaching Council’s vetting result letter which teachers were previously required to present to school employers.

It allows teachers and school employers to comply with the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016.
