  1. Hi all, I have heard that under the Trans Tasman mutual recognition act that it is possible to work as a primary teacher in WA if you are registered as a teacher in New Zealand? I am currently waiting to hear back from TRBWA as to whether my qualifications are sufficient to register as a primary teacher in WA. Although optimistic, I want to ensure I have a plan B just incase I don't obtain it. Has anyone any experience of using the mutual recognition. I would work in NZ first if required so as to be able to register in Perth. Thanks so much in advance. Best wishes

    The B.Ed was in the same university as the Business degree, so it is all on one transcript. So its almost like a 5 year degree on my transcript. I only completed two of the four years of the Business degree as I transferred then to the B.Ed but I'm sure that has to count for something? It is 5 years of uni exams passed and I studied the french as a major with both, so that remained consistent. Hope I'm not clutching at straws. It would just seem very frustrating to have to go go back and do a sixth year of uni.. I contacted the TRBWA and they said they couldn't advice me until I had sent in documents with the application. It's a tricky one!

    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    Hi all!! I am a primary school teacher, hoping to move to oz this August with my boyfriend whom is relocating with work to Perth. I am about to begin my TRBWA qualifications assessment form, and I have a query that I was wondering if anyone may know the answer to before I pay my $480.. I began my studies in University studying a Bachelor of Business Studies and French for two years, however soon realised that it wasn't for me, and transferred to a 3 year B.Ed course within the same university. I am wondering whether this will cover me for the four year tertiary degree dilemma? Here is their requirements: In order for a teaching qualification to be accredited as an ITEP it must meet the National Program Standards as outlined in the Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia: Standards and Procedures (April 2011) . 5.2 Qualifications in Teaching Recognised as Equivalent to an accredited ITEP The TRBWA will also accept qualifications in teaching that are equivalent to an accredited ITEP.The Board will generally recognise a qualification in teaching as equivalent to an accredited ITEP where it meets at least one of the following four criteria : 1.A qualification awarded on completion of a higher education course of initial teacher education that a)is of at least 4 years’ full-time duration or part-time equivalent duration; b)has at least one year (full-time or part-time equivalent) of professional teacher education subjects (including supervised teaching practice). c)includes at least 45 days satisfactory supervised teaching practice undertaken at a primary or secondary school or other recognised educational venues; and d)is comparable to an Australian Bachelor degree. 2. A qualification awarded on completion of a higher education course of initial teacher education that a)requires entrants to have a higher education qualification of at least 3 years full-time duration or part-time equivalent duration and that is comparable to an Australian Bachelor degree; b)has at least one year (full-time or part-time equivalent) of professional teacher education subjects (including supervised teaching practice). c)is of at least 1 year’s full time duration or part-time equivalent duration; d)includes at least 45 days satisfactory supervised teaching practice undertaken at a primary or secondary school or other recognised educational venue And e)is comparable to an Australian Graduate Diploma Pleeeease someone help me, as I am hoping so very much that my transcripts will suffice. Thank you so much in advance! V
