NSW Institute of Teachers

The NSW Institute of Teachers oversees a system of accreditation and recognition of a teacher's professional capacity against Professional Teaching Standards. These Standards aim to provide a common reference point to articulate and support the complex and varied nature of teachers’ work. They describe what teachers need to know, understand and be able to do as well as providing direction and structure to enhance the preparation, support and development of teachers.
