Written answers (Question to Education)

Under the Teaching Council Acts 2001-2015, the Teaching Council is the body with statutory authority and responsibility for the registration of teachers.

Teachers whose applications meet all the necessary requirements are registered by the Teaching Council under Section 31 of the Teaching Council Act and the Teaching Council (Registration) Regulations 2016.

The person referred to by the Deputy should continue to liaise directly with the Teaching Council and follow their guidance regarding their registration.
