Administrative Officer
The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is an independent statutory authority responsible for the curriculum, assessment, teacher accreditation and regulatory standards in NSW schools, and accreditation of early childhood educators. NESA is responsible for developing policies and initiatives for evaluating and improving quality teaching and student learning across all schools and school sectors. NESA was formally established on 1 January 2017, in response to the need to adopt a more strategic and outward-looking focus, greater clarity of regulatory roles and responsibilities, and streamlined processes and systems.

The Administrative Officer provides administrative support for planning and implementing NESA regulatory programs for non-government schools, the government schooling system, providers of courses for students from overseas, teacher accreditation authorities and home schooling families in accordance with relevant legislation and government, NESA and Executive objectives and records management policies and procedures.
