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 with BOSTES.
To begin the accreditation process you will need a Statement of Eligibility. Find out how to get a Statement of Eligibility.
