THE PROFESSIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL VOICE OF QUEENSLAND’S TEACHERS AND SCHOOL LEADERS IN STATE SCHOOLS AND TAFE FOR MORE THAN 130 YEARS.

This program is recognised as legitimate professional development by the Department of Education and Queensland College of Teachers. As such, it is appropriate to apply for release and funding through your normal school professional development processes.

HAT LT.pngQuEST is introducing a 3 hour ALL NEW, member-only HAT & Lead workshop.  This FREE workshop has been designed by experienced assessors and former state-wide moderators, Rebecca Hack and Cresta Richardson.  It has been specifically designed to support members in better understanding the evidentiary requirements of the process.

The workshop focuses on how to plan for certification, including approaches to collecting, collating and annotating evidence.  Participants will learn strategies for selecting meaningful evidence and discuss ways to present evidence for easy access and interpretation by assessors.  The workshop assumes a degree of prior knowledge about the certification process which can easily be gained through completion of the introductory modules developed by the Department of Education.

This workshop is designed to complement, not replicate, the workshops being delivered by DoE.
