Providing high quality Professional Development for teachers
High quality professional development (PD) helps teachers to continuously improve and maintain their teaching practice and develop their careers. The New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) coordinates a process of endorsing PD providers. Once endorsed, providers can deliver NESA Registered PD that contributes to mandatory requirements for maintaining teacher accreditation.
Information for PD Providers
NESA has introduced new streamlined criteria and processes for the endorsement of high quality professional development for teachers.
These changes are in keeping with the recommendations of the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) Review.
Interested PD providers can apply to NESA to become an endorsed provider. As a provider, once you have completed a rigorous assessment and approval process, you can register course(s) using the online account tool where teachers and schools can search for NESA Registered PD. Completing a minimum amount of NESA Registered PD is a requirement for maintaining teacher accreditation at the three career stages.
New PD Providers
On the New PD Providers page, find information for organisations seeking endorsement or seeking to broaden their scope of endorsement, including:
- how to select the right endorsement category;
- how to match the course to an accreditation level;
- how to prepare and submit an application; and
- the approval process.
Endorsed PD Providers
On the Endorsed PD Providers page, find information for PD Providers who are endorsed by NESA on:
- recording attendance;
- obligations as an endorsed provider; and
- promotional guidelines for NESA Registered courses.
The process for becoming an endorsed PD provider is different for Government, Catholic or Independent schools. The School providers page provides further information.
