As of the 1st of January 2017 all Tasmanian teachers and Limited Authority to Teach holders will be required to hold Registration to Work with Vulnerable People (RWVP) (also referred to as Working with Children check) with the Department of Justice, Tasmania.
Tasmanian teachers and Limited Authority to Teach holders will be required to record their Registration to Work with Vulnerable People (RWVP) details in their TRB Online account and their RWVP status will be automatically validated by the Department of Justice.
Teachers need to be aware that it is an offence under the Registration to Work with Vulnerable People Act 2013 section 16A for registered persons in the volunteer class to engage in a regulated activity for financial or material benefit. This means that teachers in paid employment need to ensure that they have the correct class of registration to work with vulnerable people that is the employment or employee classification as opposed to the volunteer classification. If you are unsure about your classification this is a matter for you to clarify with the Department of Justice not the Teachers Registration Board as we are not privy to your classification status.
