Chartered Status

Chartered Teacher Status is a professional accreditation that recognises the knowledge, skills and behaviours of highly accomplished teachers and school leaders, offering a career pathway that is focused on developing and recognising high-quality teaching and leadership practice. As a professional accreditation, Chartered Status builds on individual practice, priorities and interests and can be undertaken at your own pace, up to three years. You can find further information on what is involved, eligibility and other key information by downloading our Chartered Status brochure on our main website here

Choose the path that's right for you and your role

There are currently two pathways available to work towards Chartered Status:

  • Chartered Teacher pathway – For practicing teaching and middle leaders
  • Chartered Teacher (Leadership) pathway – For school leaders with whole-school or cross-school responsibility


You will need to ensure you are eligible for the pathway before registering.

Your Journey

Once you register as a Chartered Status candidate, you will need to complete the four assessment units relevant to your pathway and then apply for Chartered Status (outlined in the image below).

Recognition of Prior Certified Learning (RPCL)

Recognition of Prior Certificated Learning provides a means by which candidates may use previous relevant qualifications and professional learning that we have formally recognised, as credit towards achieving Chartered Status.  You can download a key information document which details the qualifications you may be able to apply for exemption from and the applicable conditions.


Please note that we are unfortunately unable to recognise qualifications outside of those listed.
