Temporary, contract and casual QTU members

Temporary, contract and casual teachers face a range of unique issues in their employment.

The QTU provides support for members in temporary, contract and casual positions through:

  • the QTU’s Queensland Teachers’ Assist Desk (QTAD), which can provide advice and information online, by phone or by email
  • detailed information brochures
  • a dedicated e-newsletter, “Temporary Teacher Communiqué”
  • your local Organiser or a specialist QTU officer, who are there to help with more complex issues
  • advocacy and advice throughout the conversion to permanency process.

Temporary Teacher Communique is sent by email to QTU members who have indicated they are temporary, casual or contract in their membership details. If you are not receiving the newsletter and you believe you should be, please check your details in myQTU member portal to make sure your details including your email address are up to date.
