Higher Ed providers and NESA (previously BOSTES) info sharing
The Protocols are to facilitate the cooperative exchange of data and information between NESA (previously BOSTES) and NSW universities and other higher education providers.
The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards Act 2013 permits NESA (previously BOSTES) to enter into information sharing arrangements with relevant agencies for:
- information that assists in the exercise of its functions
- data relating the teaching workforce
- research on issues relating to teacher quality.
The Protocols establish a governance framework agreed between NESA and NSW universities and other higher education providers for information sharing arrangements relating to initial teacher education programs.
