Victorian Institute of Teaching


The Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) is an independent statutory authority whose primary function is to regulate members of the teaching profession.

Our vision is to ensure that Victorian learners have the best teachers, which we achieve by accrediting initial teacher education programs, monitoring the suitability of registered teachers, developing their practice through professional standards and regulating their compliance with the Codes of Conduct and Ethics.

It is a legal requirement for all teachers to be registered with VIT in order to undertake the duties of a teacher in a Victorian school or early childhood service. Teacher registration helps maintain professional status, standing and public confidence in the teaching profession, particularly in the suitability of teachers to work with children.
