Celebrating quality teaching and inspirational teachers

From 1 January 2018 you must be accredited to start, continue or return to teaching in a NSW school or early childhood service. Being an accredited teacher means you have met the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at one or more of the four career stages in teaching.

Teachers maintaining accreditation

The Maintenance of Accreditation area is closed while we update eTAMS to reflect the new, streamlined process

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will contact you when the new maintenance functionality is available.

At that time:

  • your PD log will have been updated with any Registered PD completed and you will then be able to evaluate the registered PD you have completed
  • you will need to log Teacher Identified PD completed this year.

For now, we advise you to maintain an offline record of completed Teacher Identified PD.

If your maintenance as a Proficient Teacher is due between 1 January and 6 July, you have until 6 July 2018 to finalise your accreditation.

Read advice for teacher maintaining accreditation and interim arrangements for teachers whose maintenance was due in 2017.

Teachers applying for higher level accreditation
If you are a current candidate, you can login to upload, annotate and link evidence to Standard Descriptors and add referees.

To finalise and submit your application, email with subject ‘Higher level accreditation’.
