The QTU is proud to announce a new and exciting initiative - QuEST [Queensland Education Support and Training], the brand new professional development arm of the QTU.
QuEST’s goal is to deliver high quality professional development to teachers and school leaders across Queensland. Our new Professional Development Officer, Rebecca Hack, is working closely with QTU officers, members and external providers to identify a suite of professional development programs that will meet the needs of our members right across this diverse state.
QuEST will offer a range of programs, including face-to-face and live online programs. Programs will be open to all members. As a not-for-profit initiative, QuEST aims to keep professional development affordable and operates on a cost recovery basis.
These programs are 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 (face-to-face programs) or funding (online courses) through your normal school professional development processes.
THe QTU also provides industrial education and training programs via the Queensland Teachers' Education Centre (QTEC) - click here to see the 2019 program
