As a registered teacher, you are legally required to notify the Board when you change your name, address, or qualifications. You must do so either before the change occurs or within 60 days after the change.

You must also notify the Board in writing within 28 days if you are charged with or convicted of a prescribed offence in Tasmania or anywhere else.

 

Please change your name on your registration to work with vulnerable people (RWVP) first. Your name as it appears in our records must match the name on your RWVP registration, so we are unable to action your name change until you complete this step.

To change your name on your RWVP registration, visit a Service Tasmania shop with evidence of your new name. Proof of identity requirements are listed on the Consumer, Building and Occupational Services website here.

If you are unable to visit Service Tasmania in person, please email rwvp@justice.tas.gov.au to request a paper form. If you currently live interstate or overseas, you will also need to request information on how to provide suitable evidence of your new name.

Suitable documentary evidence is required to formally change your name on our records. You can provide a correctly certified copy of original document. Please read our fact sheet on certifying your evidence correctly before organising your certified copies.

Suitable evidence includes:

  • a certified copy of a marriage certificate
  • a certified copy of a deed poll
  • other name change documentation.

If you have been known by any other names, you will need to provide certified copies of documentary evidence for all those names. For example:

  • marriage certificate
  • deed poll
  • divorce certificate/order (decree absolute)
  • other name change documentation.

If you are or have been known by a name for which an official name change has not been made, you must provide a statutory declaration clearly stating the name by which you are or have been known.

We will send you an email confirmation of the name change in our records. You will then appear under your new name on the public register of Tasmanian teachers and (if applicable) the Watched Registrations list.

Update your contact details whenever you change:

  • residential address
  • postal address
  • email address
  • contact phone numbers

To update your contact details, log in to TRB Online and click on the second blue tab labeled ‘My details’. Use the edit function to activate the fields so you can update your record.

Please make sure your email address is up to date, as this is the main method we use to communicate important messages.

To add a new qualification, log in to TRB Online and click on the second blue tab labeled ‘My details’. Select ‘Qualifications’ and use the ‘add’ function to complete the relevant fields.

You must provide certified copies of your qualifications so that they can be verified by the Board. Please read our fact sheet on certifying your evidence correctly before organising your certified copies.

Provide the Board with both:

  • a certified copy of the certificate (testamur)
  • a certified copy of the accompanying statement of results.

Provide the Board with both:

  • a certified copy of the certificate (testamur)
  • a certified copy of your full academic transcript indicating the degree/award that was received/conferred.

The Board also accepts Australian eQuals. Please email the direct link to your eQuals document/s to equals@trb.tas.gov.au. We are unable to accept eQuals that have been downloaded as a PDF and sent as an attachment by email.

Provide the Board with:

  • your conferred academic transcript
  • the testamur
  • your Australian Higher Education Graduate Statement.

 

You must notify the Board in writing within 28 days if you are charged with or convicted of a prescribed offence in Tasmania or anywhere else. A prescribed offence is an offence where a sentence of imprisonment may apply – whether or not it is imposed. Examples of a prescribed offence include driving under the influence, common assault, stealing, and drug offences.

For notifications, please email conduct@trb.tas.gov.au.
