The Teaching Council provides an online register of New Zealand Teachers. It lists all teachers that are registered, as well as those that hold a current practising certificate. Note that only people holding a current practising certificate are able to be legally employed as teachers in New Zealand.
A Teacher search may be done by registration number, surname, or both.
Results are returned displaying first names and surname, registration number, category of certification, expiry date and any annotations. Categories can include Full, Provisional, Cancelled, and Subject to Confirmation. Provisional is usually a newly qualified teacher or new to New Zealand. Subject to confirmation is normally an experienced teacher who has been unable to be appraised fully as a practising teacher in the last five years.
Notes on the Registered Teachers search may include Censure’s, Voluntary Agreements not to teach, Competence conditions, and Extensions.
