I am not currently registered in WA

​I would like to become registered

In order to become a registered teacher in Western Australia, an application for registration must be completed, payment of the appropriate application fee made and then registration granted.

The various application forms detail the information that must be provided for the Teacher Registration Board of Western Australia (TRBWA) to make a complete assessment against the criteria set out in the Teacher Registration Act 2012 (Act) and in TRBWA policies.

The Act creates four categories of registration available for teacher registration in Western Australia. Please refer to the Registration Categories page for information about each registration category.

Application fees

The application fee is determined on where your initial teacher qualification was completed. Information on the application fees is available on the Fees page.

Application processing times

The Board aims to process applications for registration as quickly as practicable. Most applications are finalised within 10 weeks.

It may, however, take longer, depending on the completeness and accuracy of the documentation and information supplied, the complexity of the application and the time it takes for the results of the criminal history check to be returned to the TRBWA.
