Accreditation of Early Childhood Teachers

CCSA continues to represent members in various working groups and forums. One important working group is the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) Working Party for the Accreditation of teachers working in Early Childhood Setting. CCSA supports the transition of Early Childhood Teachers (ECTs) to the teacher accreditation system and is assisting where possible to ensure that ECTs are supported through the process, and that the transition will not disadvantage teachers.

CCSA will continue to provide information on this process to our members on the Accreditation page of our website, and we also encourage you to track the BOSTES website to stay up-to-date.

You can download the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers here.
