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 is to 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.
Rural Teacher Exchange Program
Applications are open for the Rural Teacher Exchange Program, which offers permanent Department of Education teachers the opportunity to spend 12 months working in another NSW public school in a totally different environment.
