The Teachers' Council provides a list of all registered teachers to MoE Payroll who match it to their payroll records and report back all matches and any payroll records that were not matched to a registration record. The Teachers' Council reviews the matches and confirms the matches with the teachers. The Teachers' Council also follows up the payroll records that were not matched to registration records, firstly with the teacher concerned and then if necessary with the school.
Once the match has been confirmed, MoE Payroll check that the correct allowances are being paid for the person's registration status.
