Teacher transfers

Transfers, which are set to be released tomorrow (Thursday 14 September), can be among the most exciting or stressful times a teacher will face in their career.

The QTU can help if you have questions about the transfer process and provide advice about review options in the event that you are not satisfied with the outcome.

There are two separate processes of review open to you, dependent on whether you received an unwelcome transfer or were unsuccessful in applying for a transfer.

The QTU sought improvements to the teacher transfer and relocations process during EB8 negotiations, and work has begun on this project during 2017.

For more information or assistance with the review process and timelines related to teacher transfer decisions, you should check out the information page at

If you would like to discuss your options, you can also contact your QTU Regional Organiser or the Queensland Teachers’ Assist Desk (QTAD) on 1300 117823.
