The department is currently updating the process to apply for provisionally registered teacher (PRT) grants program, and as a result the second PRT grant round will not be conducted from July to September 2023.
The next grant round will open in March 2024.
To reduce the impact of this one-off change, the eligibility criteria will be temporarily modified. We will accept applications in March 2024 from approved providers that still employ an early childhood teacher they supported to move to full registration between April 2023 and March 2024.
We will provide further information on the application process in early 2024, through the program webpage(opens in a new window).
The department is proud of the success and ongoing development of the PRT grants program, which has provided funding to support over 2,500 early career early childhood teachers to reach full registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.
This temporary change to the program schedule will help the department ensure the sustainability of the program and support its growth as the workforce expands to meet the needs of Three-Year-Old Kindergarten and the Best Start, Best Life reforms.
