Changes to School Registration and Accreditation Requirements – November 2021

Overview of changes

The New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) has announced changes to the school Registration requirements to take effect on 1 January 2022.

The NESA Registered and Accredited Individual Non-Government Schools (NSW) Manual has been updated to reflect the changes.

The changes have been made to reduce the overall administrative burden on schools by removing the requirement to provide documentary evidence of compliance for quality of student learning.

Changes have also been made to NESA inspection processes by increasing the emphasis on risk-based approaches and introducing a non-inspection visit pathway for some schools.
