QTU Response to Redesigning the secondary-tertiary Interface: Queensland Review of Senior Assessment and Tertiary Entrance Processes
The QTU, as a key stakeholder in education in this state, believes that it is important to provide a response to the key recommendations outlined in the Australian Council for Educational Research report : Redesigning the secondary-tertiary interface: Queensland Review of Senior Assessment and Tertiary Entrance.
The QTU strongly supports the retention of a standards–referenced, externally moderated, school-based assessment model as the primary mechanism for determining Queensland student educational achievement in senior subjects. It is a system that is highly regarded for its quality assurance of educational standards and one which affirms the role of teachers as highly skilled professionals. Assessment that is devised by teachers to form an integral part of the learning process is the most powerful assessment.
For further information on this important topic for our Senior students and teachers, read the entire QTU's Submission which was developed in November 2014.
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
