Experienced Teacher Standards Pathway 2022


Teachers on Band 2 of the Standards and Hybrid MEA can apply to complete Experienced Teacher accreditation and when successful move to Band 3.

Applicants collect evidence of their everyday practice over a year and upload it to their ISTAA digital portfolio. Evidence is in the form of documents, a testimonial based on classroom observations, references and an attestation from the head of the school. Applicants are supported by school-based supervisors and can also attend courses conducted by the ISTAA team.

Once Experienced Teacher accreditation is achieved it is recognised by all schools on an MEA in NSW, ACT and Tasmania.

As a previous applicant said, ‘Experienced Teacher accreditation is a challenging and professionally rewarding journey. My students are benefitting from me undertaking this rigorous and thought-provoking process.’
