NESA Accredited Professional Development Courses

Teacher Professional Development

Update from NSW Govt. on PD courses

On 30th November 2020 we were informed that ‘the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning has announced that the Accreditation of Professional Development Courses policy will immediately replace the existing endorsement of Professional Development Providers and Courses Policy (Feb 2019). Professional Development courses accredited under the new requirements will need to meet the NSW NESA principles of Effective Professional Learning and Content Criteria and will need to relate to an identified priority area’.

This means our current Professional Development courses (previously NESA accredited) have been temporarily discontinued. After the reaccreditation process, there are eight courses have been granted interim accreditation until 4 February 2022.

We will continue to endeavour to meet the need for Professional Development in Rudolf Steiner schools and pre-schools and will also explore developing a range of courses from pre-school to high school, in line with the new accreditation criteria.

See our website for news on our accredited courses and any updated information.
