A person must be assessed as a fit and proper person to be registered as a teacher.
When determining whether a person is a fit and proper person to be registered, the Teacher Registration Board of Western Australia (TRBWA) must have regard to:
- the person's history of compliance with or any relevant decision under the Teacher Registration Act 2012 (Act) or any laws in other Australian States or a Territory or New Zealand that deal with the registration of teachers
- the person's criminal history as provided by the national criminal record check and overseas criminal record check/s (if a person, has resided as an adult in a country other than Australia for a cumulative period of 12 months or more)
- whether a person has responded honestly to questions on their application
- whether the person's behaviour does not meet a standard generally expected of a teacher, or shows the person is not of good character
- whether the person has failed to pay any costs, expenses or fines payable by them under the Act
- any other matters relating to the person that the TRBWA considers appropriate.
