Celebrating quality teaching and inspirational teachers

Welcome to the online accreditation system for all primary, secondary and early childhood teachers in NSW. It's where you can: update your personal information, log and track your PD, review and evaluate PD course offerings, submit accreditation reports, submit a leave of absence and monitor progress of your accreditation. Endorsed PD Providers can manage their courses and upload PD session participation.

Visit the NESA website for more information about accreditation to teach and quality teaching in NSW.

NESA extends our heartfelt sympathies to the people and communities impacted by the recent bushfires. We understand that the bushfires may have impacted your ability to pay annual fees, maintain accreditation or you have lost critical documentation.
