Great Teachers = Great Results plan
The QTU has called on the government to meaningfully negotiate with the QTU around the issues in the Great Teachers = Great Results plan since its release in April 2013.
They have failed to do this.
Key elements of the plan that the government seeks to introduce in 2014 year are a system of performance review (which in all appearances is a performance appraisal process), fixed term performance based contracts for principals and performance bonuses. Members have been informed of these issues through a series of updates to schools and area meetings.
8 April : The Newman Government released Great Teachers = Great Results plan ("The Plan")
9 April : The QTU released its initial response to The Plan
7 May : The QTU released an action-by-action analysis of The Plan
This response includes the QTU position on each matter, as well as clearly indicating the QTU's preparedness to negotiate on some areas of The Plan.This has been provided to the Director General of DETE by Senior Officers of the QTU.

QTU stands in solidarity
The Queensland Teachers’ Union wishes to express its shock at the killing of 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and stands in solidarity with the many brave teachers who risked their own lives to protect the students in their care.
These horrific events reveal the deep commitment and bravery of members of our profession under the most extreme of circumstances, and we are proud to stand with them at this terrible time.QTU, 16 Feb 2018
