Here are the steps to apply for teacher registration and a guide to time frames.
Once you have set up your account your username will be emailed to you.
If you have previously applied or held registration in Queensland, you may already have a username and password. If you have forgotten your username and password please go to myQCT.
2. Submit the application form
Log in to myQCT with your username and password, then complete and submit the online Application for teacher registration form.
This application form is for all applicants, including those applying under mutual recognition.
3. Pay the fee
Pay the required fee. It will be calculated for you while you are in your myQCT account and you can pay securely online using a credit card or via BPay. You will also have the option to pay later by Australia Post BillPay or cheque.
Check current fees
4. Prepare the required documents
Documentation varies according to your circumstances. A checklist of your required documents will be emailed to you after you submit your online application form.
All photocopied documents must be certified copies of original documents. Faxed or scanned documents are not accepted.
You are not required to post certified copies of identity documents that have been verified during the online application process.
5. Print and sign the confirmation page
You will receive a confirmation page as an attachment to the email from the QCT after submitting your online application. Print it out and sign it.
6. Mutual recognition applicants only
You will also receive a Mutual Recognition Statutory Declaration as an attachment to the email from the QCT after submitting your online application. Print it and sign it in the presence of a person authorised to do so (e.g. a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Declarations or Solicitor.)
7. Post all documents to the QCT
Your signed confirmation page, statutory declaration/s (if required) and all other certified documents must be posted to the QCT. We will assess your application once we have received all required documentation and fees.
We will contact you by email if we need additional documents or further information.
If you have verified identity documents via the online process, you do not need to post certified copies of those documents.
8. If you are unable to prepare documents as required, due to COVID-19
Should your current circumstances due to COVID-19 be such that you are unable to provide documents in the manner specified on your checklist please contact the QCT to discuss whether alternative options may be available to you.
