Please talk with the program convenor for specific details of the courses that count as professional development with NESA. Applicants living in New South Wales seeking to use a retraining specialisation to add an additional teaching qualification to their portfolio must already hold an accredited teaching degree and have been registered as a teacher with NESA. For recognition in other states, territories and countries, graduates should contact the regulatory authority in the relevant jurisdiction to determine the specific requirements for recognition as a teacher in that area.
