NSW teacher accreditation fees now due

5 Dec 2014

Annual teacher accreditation fees are due on 31 January 2015 and can be paid online, by phone or by cheque.

Paying annual fees is a condition of accreditation and employment as an accredited teacher in a NSW school.

 Annual fees support quality teaching in NSW by enabling BOSTES to coordinate a rigorous system of accreditation which:

  • helps train and develop teachers to improve student learning outcomes
  • further improves the status of the teaching profession
  • recognises the invaluable role teachers play in the community.

About NSW teacher accreditation requirements

To start or return to work as a teacher in a NSW school, teachers must be provisionally or conditionally accredited with BOSTES. Teachers must then achieve and maintain Proficient Teacher Accreditation.

Higher levels of accreditation are also available to teachers who want to extend themselves professionally and be recognised for stand-out achievements. 

In the future accreditation will be mandatory for all NSW school and early childhood teachers. This requirement will be rolled out over the next three years with a focus, during 2015, on consultation and planning with key stakeholders.
