If you are a casual teacher in NSW working in NSW public schools, you will notice a status next to your name in your teacher profile section.

This status can be seen by schools you are currently attached to and to schools who are looking to add you to their list.

The verification status is a new integration with the NSW Department of Education and is designed as a time saving tool for all NSW public schools who need to know that you are accredited and approved to teach and have all of your mandatory training completed.

How do you get a green tick?

  1. Make sure you are approved to teach and have done all your mandatory training via MyPL and e-Safety

  2. Login to your ClassCover profile and enter in the information required to send to the NSW Department of Education (as seen below). Fill in your NESA ID and date of birth and submit.

💡 Good to know

We surveyed our NSW public schools and nearly 70% won't book teachers without a green tick. Schools are also removing teachers from their list who have orange ticks and no ticks at all so it's important to get this.

What do the different statuses mean?

Green tick – You are 100% verified to teach

This means that your approval to teach is confirmed and you have completed your mandatory training. Learn more

Orange tick – You are partially verified to teach

You will see this when you have your approval to teach confirmed, however your mandatory training is showing as incomplete. Learn more

No tick and showing ‘Not verified’ - Not matched with DoE

This status will appear when your details haven’t matched with the NSW Department of Education’s data and your details can’t be found. You will need to check and re-submit your details in order to fix this. Learn more

No tick and showing ‘Not verified’

You will see this when your approval to teach is not verified and your mandatory training has not been completed. You will also see this if you are not a registered teacher but do get work through ClassCover as an SLSO / EA and other. Learn more
