Teacher accreditation in NSW
Scheduled maintenance will be held from 6 pm Friday 27 May to 7 pm Sunday 29 May. The Teacher Accreditation account login will be unavailable during this period.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
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. Accreditation requirements will apply to all school teachers from 1 January 2018.
