Initial accreditation for member schools

Provisional accrediation applies to new schools and established schools with a period of initial accreditation.

Newly accredited non-government schools must meet the requirements of the Act upon commencement of operation.

It is expected, however, that the applicant will provide evidence of policies and procedures that will ensure compliance of the school with the requirements of the Act should the application be successful.
