The primary functions of the Board were to maintain a register of teachers and a register of schools. All schools were to be registered by the Board as a sub-primary or primary or secondary school within three months of notification or of establishment.

Teachers were to provide evidence to the Board of their fitness to teach, of their employment as a teacher and at which level they wished to be registered.

The Board was also given the right to inspect school buildings and premises at any time, without notice, to determine their suitability for use as a school.

The Board had the power to make regulations:

determining the courses of study and training and the examinations entitling persons to be registered as teachers
;regulating the granting of certificates of registration and their form
;providing for the keeping of the registers
;defining the status of schools as sub-primary, primary or secondary schools for the purposes of the Act
