To help teachers focus on teaching and learning during the COVID outbreak, NESA has updated its advice on accreditation extensions.
This includes teachers who were due to finalise their maintenance on 17 July 2021. These teachers were previously granted an extension until 17 January 2022. Teachers should disregard the current due date in their NESA online account (eTAMS) as this will not be updated.
NESA has communicated about this extension to eligible teachers.
Other teachers who are concerned about completing accreditation requirements can apply for an extension to their due date.
Further information, including advice on observations of practice, is available on NESA’s COVID advice page.
Ceasing and suspension
Until further notice NESA is also delaying:
- ceasing action for teachers who have not met Proficient Teacher accreditation
- suspension action for teachers who have not maintained their accreditation.
NESA will communicate with overdue teachers when these actions restart.
