Key functions of a national accreditation system are likely to include:

(a) assessment and accreditation of initial teacher education programs and/or courses;

(b) collaborating with institutions and  the profession to ensure on-going improvements to initial teacher education programs respond to evolving social and educational needs and to emerging  evidence on learning  development, curriculum and pedagogy;

(c) collaboration with accreditation systems in other countries (e.g. for mutual recognition); and

(d) auditing national teacher workforce supply and demand with the aim of advising on requirements for teacher education places in universities.
