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
