"Loving the master classes, lots of information to unpack and use. The information so far has been very practical and I have been using it at the centre I work. I will admit it’s faster paced in terms of content available than I had anticipated and have time for but I’m chipping away slowly 😀 lots to learn. Thank you for all the rich information you’ve providing I am learning a lot."

As of 5th February 2021, NESA deregistered all early childhood providers and any courses they had accredited, this included any offered by the Koori Curriculum.

Information about the new processes for accreditation of PD courses, including course content criteria, is expected to be available on the NESA website around mid-July 2021 and applications will open shortly after that time. We aim to applying for accreditation during this time.

Early Learning Educators are able to log completed hours under Elective PD course hours as they will count equally for teachers who are completing their Maintenance of Accreditation in 2021 and 2022:  https://www.educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/portal/nesa/teacher-accreditation/meeting-requirements/maintaining-accreditation/maintenance-transition-arrangements
