Second Step to Immigration to NZ – Register with Teachers Council


Relevant Website: http://www.teacherscouncil.govt.nz/registration/how/eligibility/

Objective: Register with NZTC in order to continue immigration process.

Documents Required: No photocopies, everything must be original.

  • FBI records (get 2 you will not get this back, but you need it in the future as well) It took about a month to receive these from the FBI.
  • College Transcripts AND diploma
  • Teaching certification
  • Employment records (If you’re a teacher you will use submit this many times during the immigration process so have the schools give you two if possible)
  • On school letterhead, starting date, finishing date, fulltime/part-time, short description of job, and a statement that you have/haven’t taken long leave of absents

Submit Date: Mailed application Late March 2009.

Finish Date: June 8, 2009 I received a package in the mail with my registration and a second package a few days later with my registration card.

Notes: Your teaching registration is not subject specific. Unlike many states in the U.S. you do not need to be certified for each subject. For example, a social studies teacher can teach math. I received a provisional cert. expiring June 2012.
