Who needs to read this notice:
In 2014, the Education Amendment (Government Schools) Act 2014 amended section 27 of the Education Act 1990 so that BOSTES is, with the assistance of the Department of Education and Communities (DEC), to provide advice to the Minister on the compliance by NSW government schools with requirements similar to those required for the registration of non-government schools.
Read the Media release from the Minister for Education - 28 May 2014 pdf.
The Registration Process for the NSW Government Schooling System Manual is now available.
The Manual describes the similar requirements for the registration process for the NSW government schooling system and the process to be implemented by BOSTES commencing in 2015.
BOSTES and DEC will continue to consult on the quality assurance process and the source and nature of documentation necessary to demonstrate policy implementation and compliance with the requirements.
This consultation will have particular regard to minimising any additional administrative burden on either DEC or individual schools and on utilising any existing or future DEC systems or processes that serve a similar purpose to BOSTES systems or processes.
Further information about the new registration process is available on the BOSTES website.
