NESA accreditation

    Hi,

    I was hoping somebody on here might be able to help me as I can't find anything online for my situation!

    I'm currently in Sydney on a working holiday visa. I have a bachelor of education in primary teaching with 7 years experience (2 years in Ireland, 5 years in UK- 2 and a half of which as Key Stage One manager)

    I've applied for accreditation with NESA and have submitted all of the certified documents, including my Working With Children Check clearance number.

    However....

    My bachelor of education degree was only 3 years so I am worried I won't receive accreditation and therefore I wouldn't be able to teach during my time here.

    I've done a tonne of professional development over the 7 years and have great references from jobs I've been in...

    So my question really is, should I be worried? I love teaching and would be devastated if I wasn't allowed back in the classroom!

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Sinead
