INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS
TEACHER ACCREDITATION AUTHORITY

Independent Schools Teacher Accreditation Authority

Teacher accreditation in NSW independent schools takes a number of different forms depending on the type of industrial agreement in place and a range of other factors. In all instances, new teachers (those who commenced after October 2004 or are returning after an absence of 5 years or more) must be registered with NESA. Teachers can be recognised and, where relevant, remunerated by gaining accreditation through NESA and/or the Independent Schools Teacher Accreditation Authority.
