We are pleased to confirm registration renewal for the year 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 is now complete.
Did you know that as a registrant with the EWC you have an individual record on our Register of education practitioners? You can view and update your own record through the MyEWC.
Because we hold information about you on our Register, a new privacy law (the GDPR) requires us to tell you about how we look after and use your data. You can find out more about this here.
You need an up to date record on our Register in order to access some of the benefits of registration.
We have written to all registrants to confirm their registration.
Your legal responsibilities are summarized below
- Registration with the EWC is a requirement for all education practitioners before they commence work.
- The EWC has seven different registrant categories (school teacher, FE teacher, school or FE learning support worker, work based learning practitioner, qualified youth worker and qualified youth support worker) and practitioners must be registered in ALL the categories relevant to the work they undertake. You have a statutory responsibility to ensure that no practitioner undertakes any work in a category for which they are not registered.
- To assist you in complying with your responsibilities, we have previously provided you with access to the Register of Education Practitioners in order to check the registration status of your current and any prospective employees. It is imperative that you use your online access to the Register to check / update / remove information for a staff member and check EWC disciplinary orders.
- You must refer EWC registered staff to the us where you dismiss or would have dismissed the staff member for issues of conduct, competence or a relevant criminal offence. It is important that you and your staff are familiar with the EWC Code of Professional Conduct and Practice which sets out the key principles of good conduct and practice expected from registrants. All employers should be clear on the requirements for referring a registrant to the Council.
Please refer to the EWC employer guide for your more information on your legal responsibilities.
