Teachers in NSW pay an annual fee to support accreditation and ongoing professional development and training. Application fees also apply to higher levels of accreditation.
Review the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) current annual fees and costs for submitting higher levels of accreditation applications.
Pay your annual accreditation fee
You can pay your annual fee online, over the phone or by cheque.
Pay your application fee for higher levels of accreditation
Preliminary assessment and submission fees apply for Highly Accomplished or Lead Teacher Accreditation.
Pay your re-accreditation fee

Taking or returning from leave
If you are taking extended time off, you may be able to put your annual accreditation fee on hold. Your accreditation must be reactivated when you return to teaching in NSW.
Payment terms and conditions
Paying your annual fee is a condition of accreditation, and therefore employment as a teacher in a NSW school.
