How to become a Teacher Accreditation Authority (TAA)

TAAs are generally either principals of schools (independent) or nominated individuals who are responsible for large groups of schools (Catholic Systemic schools and the Department of Education).  New TAAs need to lodge an authority document with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES).

Register new TAA details with BOSTES:

Please provide on your school or organisation’s letterhead:

  • Full name
  • Role
  • Date of birth
  • Address details
  • Direct email address
  • Phone number

Send a scanned copy of the letter to: itreply@nswteachers.nsw.edu.au
