Teacher accreditation in NSW
Accreditation supports quality teaching and recognises the invaluable role teachers play in the community.
To start or return to working as a teacher in a NSW school, you must be accredited by BOSTES.
The first step in the accreditation process is applying for Provisional or Conditional Accreditation. Apply for Provisional or Conditional Accreditation.
Teachers who have worked in a NSW school since before 1 October 2004, and have not had a break from teaching of more than 5 years, do not currently need to be accredited.
From 1 January 2018, all teachers will need to be accredited to continue, return to or start teaching in a NSW school. More for pre-2004 school teachers
