Certificates of Full Registration

All TIS probationers who gain full registration at the end of this academic session will receive their letter and Certificate of Full Registration by mid to end July. If your Local Authority needs confirmation of your registration, they can search the register here.

ITE Profile

If you completed your ITE profile at the end of last session (2019), and are now unable to view it, please don’t be concerned. If the key strengths and development needs are not copied across to your interim profile in August when you start your probation we would suggest that you use one of your first supporter meetings to discuss this area and agree what can be entered into your new profile. It’s a great way for your supporter to get to know you.
