About the Queensland Department of Education
Queensland Department of Education (DoE) is responsible for delivering high quality public education services to nearly 70% of all Queensland school students. As the largest employer of school teachers in Queensland, we look after around:
- 1,240 schools
- 50,000 teachers
- 543,000 students.
We’ve been proudly providing quality education services to Queenslanders for over 190 years, enjoying a long and rich history supporting local communities. Teach Queensland supports the department to attract talented teachers to our state’s public schools. We also promote a range of incentives and experiences that target
high demand subject areas and priority locations.
Schools in Queensland
There are 3 types of schools in Queensland:
- our state (public) schools
- independent schools
- Catholic schools.
When you apply to teach with us, you’re applying to teach in Queensland’s state school system. If you are seeking employment in non-state schools in Queensland (independent and Catholic schools) you will need to apply directly to those schools or their employing authority.
