Education Leaders Committee

The QTU has a standing committee titled the Educational Administrators Committee (EAC) which comprises fifteen principals and associate administrators (DPs, HODs, HOSES). The committee is chaired by Ms Alan Cook.
The Education Leaders Committee undertakes the following tasks:

  • provides advice to the QTU Executive on a range of issues relevant to educational administrators and other members;
  • monitors departmental processes such as relocations and merit selection;
  • reviews and develops QTU policy relevant to educational administrators;
  • liaises with other QTU standing committees;
    and
  • oversees the organisation of the annual QTU Education Leaders Conference.

Any members wishing to have EAC address a specific issue should outline the issue and send it to: services@qtu.asn.au (mark it Attention: Education Leaders Committee)
