The Guidelines for the accreditation of initial teacher education programs in Australia (Accreditation Guidelines) support the implementation of the Accreditation of initial teacher education programs in Australia: Standards and Procedures (Standards and Procedures).

The Accreditation Guidelines were first developed in 2016, and are designed to promote consistent assessment and rigour in the accreditation process by supporting: 

  • teacher regulatory authorities undertaking the national accreditation process as set out in the Standards and Procedures
  • initial teacher education providers preparing and submitting accreditation applications
  • accreditation panels assessing accreditation applications.
