Update on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA)

Amendments to the Education Act introducing the RoSA have now passed both Houses of the NSW Parliament without amendment.

In due course, the amendments will be proclaimed, marking the formal creation of the new credential for students who leave school prior to receiving their HSC.

When these amendments are made law, the Board will start making changes to the BoS website, and associated sites such as Schools Online to reflect the creation of the RoSA, and to provide teachers, students, parents and employers with ongoing updates on the various measures being introduced as part of the RoSA.

Read more about the changes to the Education Act, or the background documents relating to the development of RoSA. The presentation for principals has been updated.
