The TRBWA is the body responsible for the registration of teachers in Western Australia and registers all teachers, from early childhood to Year 12, who teach in a Western Australian educational venue. The TRBWA is also responsible for the accreditation of initial teacher education programmes in WA.
Registration with the TRBWA is essential in order to work as a teacher in Western Australia. The IEU is pro-active in ensuring members are informed about the TRBWA’s requirements for registration and any changes. We are available to provide support and advice throughout the process. Call or email us with any queries.
The IEU regularly reviews and monitors changes to TRBWA policy and directions and provides updates and thus ensuring your professional livelihood is protected.

Increase in TRBWA fees
The TRBWA has advised that fees will be increased from 1 July 2016, by 1.1%. This reflects CPI
Combined Payments - renewal between January & April
In response to IEUwa raising members’ concerns about combined TRBWA payments the TRBWA will be updating their website to clarify fee payment options.
Teachers with Registration renewal dates between January and April were being charged for both Renewal of Registration and their Annual fee as a lump sum fee when using the Teacher login payment option.
If teachers’ pay via BPAY or cheque or over the phone, they have the option of making separate payments.
The TRBWA will add a line of text to the Teacher login payment page to advise teachers of their payment options to pay the fees separately.
You have the choice as to how you would like to make your payment and you can pay the Renewal and Annual fee separately.
The double payment is unique to this time of year, when all teachers must pay their annual fee by March 31.
Teacher Registration Renewal Dates
The IEU is pleased to advise members that the TRBWA has responded to the IEU’s concerns that Teacher Registration renewal dates were not based on Registration expiry date but the date that paperwork was submitted, resulting in members losing time from their registration, and money.
Effective 20 October 2015, registration renewal dates will align with expiry dates.
The TRBWA have assured the IEU that they are investigating the reasonableness of applying this retrospectively. This is a priority. The IEU will continue to liaise with the TRBWA on this issue.
