Accredited programs list
Information about accredited teacher education programs contained within this database has been provided by the relevant teacher regulatory authority in each state and territory. Enquiries about the accreditation of these programs should be directed to the relevant teacher regulatory authority.
All qualifications listed on the database, regardless of the accreditation process, meet the teacher education component of the qualification requirement for registration (accreditation) as a (primary/secondary) school teacher in all states and territories. However, as there may be other requirements applicants will need to satisfy to gain teacher registration, applicants should refer to the teacher regulatory authority website in the state or territory they wish to work before enrolling into a program.
The approval expiry date refers to the date before which a student must commence a program in order to be eligible for meeting the qualification requirement for registration. Legislation in Western Australia and the ACT enables a program’s accreditation to remain in force until an application for re-accreditation is decided, provided that application has been submitted at least six months prior to the approval expiry date. These programs are denoted by a caret (^). An asterisk next to the approval expiry date indicates a program has been accredited against the 2011 Standards and Procedures, while two asterisks indicates that a program has been accredited against the 2015 Standards and Procedures. The duration of academic programs should be read in terms of ‘equivalent full-time student load’ (EFTSL). This defines the amount of study required for completion rather than the calendar duration.
Please note that the total number of accredited programs shown is not equivalent to the actual number of accredited programs. This is due to some accredited programs being listed in multiple jurisdictions, where applicable.
‘Pending Accreditation’ refers to: a) new programs undergoing initial accreditation; and b) continuing programs with an expired accreditation approval that are undergoing the re-accreditation process.
‘Accredited, not currently offered’ refers to programs that have not yet reached expiry but are no longer accepting enrollments.
