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.

Teachers who have worked in NSW since before 1 October 2004, and have not had a break from teaching of more than 5 years, are not currently required to be accredited.
