Teachers Registration Board of the Northern Territory

Teacher education

The Teacher Registration Board has a statutory responsibility under the Teacher Registration (Northern Territory) Act to ensure that only persons who are fit and proper, and who are appropriately qualified, are employed as teachers in the Northern Territory.

The Act makes provision for the Board to fulfil this responsibility in a number of ways, including through involvement in pre-service teacher education. The Act requires the Board to accredit teacher education courses in relation to standards, to assess the relevance of courses to the teaching profession in the Territory and to make recommendations to the Minister for Education in relation to the minimum qualifications and other requirements for registration.

The Board uses the standards, guidelines and processes for the approval of pre-service teacher education programs contained in the Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia - Standards and Procedures April 2011 and Guide to the Accreditation Process April 2012.
