Conditionally accredited crunch time

NESA will be following up all conditionally accredited teachers to ensure they complete their academic and proficient teacher requirements within their allocated time frame.

While there was considerable flexibility around accreditation processes during the COVID-19 pandemic, this grace period is coming to an end.

If you are conditionally accredited and there is a chance you might not complete your study and professional obligations within the time frame, we urge you to contact your organiser immediately.

If you are a supervisor or mentor for a conditionally accredited teacher, you should be working closely with them to ensure they can meet their commitments. Contact the professional engagement team for support if you need it.
