Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards NSW
BOSTES was created by the NSW Government to sustain and improve the already high standards of achievement in NSW schools.
BOSTES commenced operation on 1 January 2014, and brings together the functions previously provided by the Board of Studies NSW, and the NSW Institute of Teachers. The Quality Teaching Council will continue to function under the auspices of BOSTES.
BOSTES brings a new focus in NSW on how research, data and experience on standards setting can be used to make improvements across the whole education spectrum.
