Teach Queensland events

Our Teach Queensland calendar of events includes university visits, career fairs and information sessions for preservice,  graduate and experienced teachers to learn more about teaching in Queensland state schools.

Each year we host two career fairs – the Teach Rural Career Fair and Teach Queensland Career Fair – where you can talk face-to-face with our recruiters and school leaders about your teaching career. 

In 2019, the Teach Rural Career Fair will be held on Wednesday 8 May 2019 followed by the Teach Queensland Career Fair on Wednesday 4 September 2019.  Both events are free and will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 1pm to 7pm. 

We are always adding new dates to our events calendar so check back regularly and follow us on social media for the latest event information.
