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.
