Search the Register

           

The online register lets you check the registration status of any teacher who is registered with us.

The information displayed will show you if someone is registered with us, if they are subject to a temporary restriction order or are subject to a current fitness to teach disposal order (i.e. reprimand, condition or combination of both). Where a teacher has been removed from the Register as a result of a fitness to teach decision, this will be displayed for a period of two years.

PRINTING ISSUE: We are aware of the printing issue on Search the Register. Our developers are working hard to get the feature working. In the meantime, we recommend you screenshot the page then print. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that this register has been compiled with care however we take no responsibility for decisions based on the information contained here.
