Teacher Accreditation Authority - Support for Member Schools
While school-based TAAs may base their documentation on AISNSW templates and drafts, they should ensure that their policies and procedures reflect the real context of the TAA, describing the processes that actually occur, and should ensure consistency, where relevant, with the school’s (and/or ECEC’s) policies and procedures.
TAAs are also strongly advised to seek appropriate legal advice to confirm the suitability of their policies, including those based on drafts provided by AISNSW.
Please contact the AISNSW Regulation and Accreditation Portfolio on (02) 9299 2845 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or assistance about TAA regulatory matters, ISTAA or general teacher accreditation matters.
NOTE: From 29 November 2022, NESA will become the sole authority to make teacher accreditation decisions. At that point, the Guidelines for the Regulation of Teacher Accreditation Authorities for Non-government Schools and Early Childhood Centres will no longer apply. NESA has published further information about the changes here.
All TAAs will continue making accreditation decisions until 29 November 2022 in accordance with their policies and procedures. From this date, school-based TAAs will no longer exist and schools will no longer make accreditation decisions. Schools will continue to have a role in supporting teachers with accreditation.
