Teachers registration and IELTS category

Hi, can anyone please inform me that do secondary school teachers need Academic IELTS to register as teacher and not General training (GT)? Normally everyone assume that its acedemic for students and GT for professionals.
Also, will this work for immigration as well or do I need to take separate GT IELTS for migration purpose?
Also please inform that is registration optional for any remote state and I can at least migrate with 7 bands each in GT or Academic? Please help its my ever first post here

All Australian teacher registration has a language requirement now (all standard across all states & NZ) and they accept 3 different tests

International English Language Testing System (IELTS) - Academic: Overall 7.5 with the following required in each of the skill areas: speaking 8.0, listening 8.0, reading 7.0 and writing 7.0.

International Second Language Proficiency Rating (ISLPR): Level 4 required in each of the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Professional English Assessment for Teachers (PEAT): Band A required in each of the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing.


99% of all teaching jobs require registration, there are some exemptions for LOTE teachers where there isn't qualified employees but the school must apply for the exemption on the employees behalf

Thanks both of my friends. Yes I am qualified as M.ed. and M.sc. physics but also have much official work experience including teaching. So if I plan to use this category 241411 to migrate only but works in any other official department for my living, I think its fair? Is there any exemption to use this tool and skip away the registration condition?
I am still confuse because few states list really not mentioned registration required unlike ACT, Victoria and Sydney (I will send you the exact state names later on to confirm who not mentioned registration).
Please respond in the mean time for this quote. Thanks in advance.

No getting around the fact if you want to be a teacher in an Australian school you will need to get registered no matter how many years you have been a teacher or what great qualifications you have from overseas

My wife was a teacher in a Chinese School, has two Masters degrees but she still needs to pass an academic IELTS to gain registration and even then she has little hope in getting a school job in Australia with "foreign" (ie.non UK/US/Canada) education degrees/experience which sees her doing an online Graduate Diploma of Teaching at an Australian Uni right now
