NESA’s Maintenance of Accreditation Transition arrangements due to PD requirement changes:
The transition arrangements apply to all teachers currently maintaining their accreditation (at Proficient or above). If teachers have already completed their 100 hours under the previous requirements before or during 2021, regardless of when their maintenance is due, they will have met the PD requirements for their current maintenance period.
NESA Accredited PD replaces NESA Registered PD
Elective PD replaces Teacher Identified PD (TIPD)
Teachers whose current maintenance of accreditation period ends 2021:
For teachers accredited at Proficient who have not yet completed their 100 hours of PD, their remaining PD hours completed and logged will need to meet the Elective PD criteria.
Teachers whose current maintenance of accreditation period ends from 2022:
Teachers accredited at Proficient who have not yet completed their 100 hours of PD will need to complete a minimum of one NESA accredited course in a priority area during their current maintenance period. Any remaining PD hours completed and logged will need to meet the Elective PD criteria.
The information above means that completed and logged Elective PD will count towards a teacher’s NESA PD requirements.
