    Default teacher registration

    Hi,
    We are about to tackle the EOI form. If anyone can help I would be really grateful. When do I have to submit all the paper work eg police checks, medical evidence etc? Also there is talk of having to get registration with NZ teaching council. Is all this needed when / if I'm invited to apply or earlier ?

    Thanks

    All documentation is handed in with your ITA not your EOI. Can't help you with the teacher regsitration (I am a nurse) but there are teachers on the forum who can answer that. For what it is worth I had to have my nursing registration to hand in with my ITA.

    Hi,

    Here's a site relating to teacher registration which may throw some light on the subject but, as Nicky says, you wouldn't need this until you've been invited to apply for residency.

    I've been through the teacher registration process.

    You should begin as soon as you complete your EOI. Don't wait until you have your ITA, as it can take months to gather up your paperwork and get your application processed.

    Also, do everything within your power to get Subject to Confirmation, rather than Provisional, registration. (They've recently made it easier, which is good news.) That might make it easier for you to find a job.

    Thank you guys,
    Kiwi Hopeful, does that mean you are teaching in NZ? If so is there anything else that I need to know about the applying? How do you find teaching over there and is it fairly easy to get employment? Sorry to bombard you with questions but I am a bit in the dark about the practicalities of working over there and with a family to support finances are obviously critical to whether we go for it or not!

    Cheers

    You might read KH's thread here to get started. I don't know all the politics involved but it hasn't been smooth sailing.

    More than a bit discouraged

    You may try this site......which has the relevant information you require, or at least put you on the right track. I would endorse KiwiHopeful's point about trying to get Subject to confirmation registration rather than Provisional.....it does make your employment chances better. I'm a retired Principal and have STC registration too, just to keep my hand in...

    When I was hunting around looking for something else I came upon this which sheds a different light on the matter of registration.

    Registration
    Please note that if your job offer is one that requires registration (please check the EOI guide) you must have full or provisional registration before you lodge an Expression of Interest. This is also required if you have a partner who holds an offer of employment in a registerable position
    If you do not have registration you cannot claim points for skilled employment in New Zealand and may also lose points for qualifications and work experience. In most cases no registration will lead to the EOI being returned back to the pool or declined
    Please note there are some registration boards (i.e. electrical and most medical professions), which will not give provisional registration to offshore applicants. Applicants in this situation are advised to secure New Zealand work visas and lodge an Expression of Interest from New Zealand once you have registration. Please investigate the Work to Residence policy on our website for other migration options.


    From here .

    I'm surprised someone didn't pick up on this.

    The date on that document is 2004. It may be an old policy.

    That said, if you are serious about coming to NZ, there's no reason not to go ahead and get the teacher registration taken care of before you submit your EoI... the registration is good for 3 years.

    FWIW, I didn't have my registration completed before I submitted my EoI.
