Recognising outstanding teaching practice

25 Aug 2014

More than 120 teachers from NSW Government, Catholic and independent schools have now achieved Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher Accreditation which recognise teaching at the highest levels.

Applying for accreditation at the higher levels is a rigorous, voluntary process which includes:

  • aligning your current role and practice against the Standard Descriptors from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher level
  • submitting documentary evidence and referee reports
  • external observation.

Once submitted applications are reviewed by the Moderating and Consistency Committee, a sub-committee of the Quality Teaching Council, with the decision to accredit made by the Teacher Accreditation Authority A/L (TAA A/L) for your school.
