Substitute teacher information and help

If you are a substitute teacher and wish to work in a school in Northern Ireland, you should be registered on the NISTR system.

If you are a substitute teacher already registered on the system, you can use the Login button above to connect to the NISTR web application.  If you are a substitute teacher and you wish to register on the system then complete the stages on our New Substitute Teacher Registration page. 

Once registered on the NISTR system you must maintain your GTCNI registration, and complete AccessNI Enhanced Disclosure Checks when requested.
