Professional development for teachers
We provide many opportunities for teachers to continue their professional development and build on their skills and knowledge throughout their career.
In line with Advancing education: An action plan for education in Queensland, there are opportunities for eligible teachers to participate in online professional development and upskilling courses. These have been developed in partnership with Higher Education Institutions to increase teacher confidence and capability to teach priority subjects.
Discover the range of
development and upskilling courses available to progress your career in education, or the department's professional development calendars.
Another way to advance your career is through secondments. Take the opportunity to

rural and remote incentives available too.
