Professional Accreditation

ITE programs including the Bachelor of Education (K-12) are accredited according to National Program Standards prescribed by the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL). These include both the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, and their ITE Program Standards.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is the state-based regulator, and it is their responsibility to administer the AITSL National Program Standards in NSW through the process of program accreditation. In addition to being the NSW ITE program accrediting authority, they also administer teacher registration.

The Bachelor of Education(K-12) is accredited until December 2019 by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) for national accreditation as recognised by the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL). A submission will be made to NESA in 2019 for stage 2 national accreditation by AITSL. Program accreditation is for up to 5 years and provides graduates with a qualification and eligibility for Provisional Accreditation to teach in NSW schools.
