The minimum requirement for registration as a classroom teacher with the Teacher Registration Board of the Northern Territory (TRB) is:

  • a degree awarded by a higher education institution on completion of a 4 year full-time (or the equivalent part-time duration) initial (pre-service) teacher education course that includes a minimum of 45 days of supervised practice teaching in a school, for example a four year undergraduate degree such as a Bachelor of Education

or

  • a combined four years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time duration) completed at a higher education institution that results in the award of a degree plus a qualification awarded on completion of a teacher education course of at least one year full-time duration (or the equivalent part-time duration) that includes a minimum of 45 days supervised practice teaching in a school, for example a three year undergraduate degree such as a Bachelor of Science and a minimum one year post graduate degree such as a Graduate Diploma of Teaching

Charles Darwin University offers initial teacher education programs which have been approved by the TRB to ensure graduates of these programs are eligible to apply for teacher registration.

A list of nationally approved initial teacher education programs is available from the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.
