School Accreditation

Non-state schools in Queensland are established and maintained under the legal provisions of the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2001 and the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Regulation 2001. Catholic schools in Queensland are a part of the non-state sector of education. All Catholic schools satisfy the accreditation requirements of the Act and Regulations.

Administration of the Act and Regulation is entrusted to the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board (NSSAB). Membership of the Board includes a nominee of the Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) and three “nominees of the Minister for Education, nominated after consulting with QCEC and the Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ)”.

The QCEC Nominee is the Executive Director of QCEC.

Details of the accreditation requirements and processes are available on the website of the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board.
