Life Skills Group became an endorsed provider of NESA Registered PD in 2018. In December 2020, NSW Education Standards Authority announced that new requirements for accrediting professional development (PD) courses will be phased in during 2021. NESA has yet to finalise the full accreditation criteria for previously registered courses like ours. During the interim period until 31 July 2021, teachers are still required to complete 100 hours of PD, of which a portion can be Elective PD.
Please note that the following programs which were previously registered, can be logged by participants as Elective PD during the interim period:
- In-school student programs - Healthy Skills for Life and Tools for Transition (8 hours)
- Teacher Professional Development - Wellbeing: It’s not just a policy will contribute (6 hours)
- Teacher Professional Development - Online Mindset masterclasses (4 hours)
We remain committed to providing high quality wellbeing professional development which helps educators continuously improve and maintain their teaching practice, develop their careers and meet the new requirements when they are communicated by NESA.
