If a registered teacher or LAT holder is charged with a prescribed offence, they must notify the Board in writing within 28 days of being charged.
A prescribed offence is an offence committed in Tasmania or elsewhere where a sentence of imprisonment may be imposed – whether or not it is imposed. For example, driving under the influence, common assault, stealing, or drug offences.
A registered teacher or LAT holder must also notify the Board in writing within 28 days if:
- a court has made a finding of guilty or not guilty or another finding in relation to the charge; or
- a court adjourns proceedings on the charge sine die; or
- the charge is dismissed or withdrawn.
