If you do not have a TRN
How to get a TRN
If you’re eligible for a TRN in England, you should be allocated one automatically by the Teaching Regulation Agency or Capita Teachers’ Pensions.
If you do not have a TRN but need one to do a national professional qualification (NPQ), you can request a TRN.
What a TRN is for
You need a TRN to:
- access your teaching qualifications to download your certificates, change the name on them or check details of your initial teacher training and induction
- give to employers so they can complete mandatory teacher status checks
- manage records of your contributions to the Teachers’ Pensions scheme
- give to the Department for Education (DfE) when you have been awarded QTS so you can begin your early career teacher induction
- register for an NPQ
