It has been a challenging year so far, with both the bushfires and coronavirus threatening the stability of our industry. Now more than ever, maintaining the quality of course delivery, student support and staffing through pro-active review and evaluation, professional development and continuous improvement is essential. With this in mind, NEAS continues to offer opportunities for members, education agents and the broader ELT community through our quality review activities, professional development program, the NEAS Conference and information sharing.
NEAS has recently embarked on its own transformative journey and is inviting you to join us!
The team invite you to explore our transformed website, neas.org.au The look and feel have improved with a colourful palette and user-friendly navigation features.

Every organisation needs leaders that pursue quality. Whether in management, teaching or administration, a leader in English Language Teaching (ELT) influences the decisions of others through dedication and practice.
NEAS is delighted to work with OET in showcasing aspirational quality practices with OET Preparation providers. “This agreement will allow those providers that offer OET test preparation programs to have the quality of their programs acknowledged and showcased. NEAS Quality Endorsement helps providers identify their best practices and develop a culture of quality. NEAS is delighted to be working with OET to draw attention to the great programs their partners are delivering.” – Patrick Pheasant at the signing of the OET, NEAS MOU.
At the 2019 NEAS Management Conference, NEAS formally launched a new Self-Assessment process, forming part of a new three year Quality Assurance cycle. After a period of research and benchmarking activities with fellow Quality Assurance in Language Education Network (QALEN) bodies, a successful pilot was conducted at the start of the year with a select group of NEAS members.
