Register of VET curriculum writers and reviewers

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) maintains a register of writers and reviewers to assist with vocational education and training (VET) curriculum development and review.

People with experience in writing and/or reviewing syllabuses, support materials and/or samples or units of work are invited to submit an expression of interest for inclusion on the register.

The register is used to identify potential writers and/or reviewers to undertake tasks at various stages of the year.

NESA projects require people with expertise across the industry areas covered by VET Industry Curriculum Framework courses.

Selected writers and reviewers may be drawn from metropolitan and regional areas of NSW. Writers and reviewers work under the direction of a project manager who will have responsibility for coordinating and managing tasks. The project manager also ensures that the project is completed to an acceptable standard, on time and within budget. For some projects there may be more than one person involved and the writers/reviewers will need to work collaboratively.

In the majority of cases, selected writers/reviewers will be required to work at the NESA offices at 117 Clarence Street, Sydney. There may be some instances where writers/ reviewers are required to work in an online environment.


Writers and reviewers will be required to give an undertaking that they will maintain confidentiality in relation to the project.

Placement on the register

Selection of writers/reviewers will involve consideration of the following criteria:

  • demonstrated knowledge in the relevant area(s)
  • teaching experience in relevant area(s)
  • demonstrated experience in curriculum development or evaluation in an educational environment
  • high level of writing skills
  • a capacity to review and develop materials in a contemporary ICT-enabled environment.

These criteria should be evident in your application and supporting documentation.

Submission of an Expression of Interest

The expression of interest along with accompanying statements of support should be sent to:

Principal Project Officer, Vocational Education
