Accreditation requirements for member schools

Registered non-government schools that are accredited must meet curriculum requirements that are additional to the requirements for registration.

In deciding whether the requirements of the Education Act are being complied with in relation to a registered non-government school, NESA will have regard to matters relating to the quality of student learning. Under the Education Act, such matters may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the standard of teaching of courses of study provided at the school having regard to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers as provided by the TA Act,
  • student engagement in learning at the school,
  • any matters identified in a risk assessment conducted by NESA in relation to the school.

Accredited non-government schools may enter candidates for the RoSA and/or the HSC.

This section of the website details the requirements that all accredited schools must meet and the evidence of compliance that schools must maintain for the period of accreditation. The requirements and the evidence of compliance relate to:

The Act makes provision for requirements for the Record of School Achievement and the Higher School Certificate to be prescribed by Regulations and developed by NESA. These requirements are outlined in the NESA ACE website.

The maximum period for which accreditation may be renewed is five (5) years.
