Support for new and returning teachers

​Our aim is to support teachers at all stages of their teaching career – whether you are a beginning teacher, an early career teacher or returning to the teaching profession after a long break, there are a range of resources to help you on your way.

Support for beginning teachers

Beginning your career as a teacher can sometimes be daunting. You are not only building relationships with your students but with your colleagues, parents and the school community.

For more details on the online support available, visit Beginning Teacher ind​uction​.

While you're settling into your new school, local networking events are a great way to meet other beginning teachers and build more connections to complement school induction programs.

Support for returning teachers

If you've been out of the classroom for a while, or moving to Queensland to teach, the department has developed the Restart Teaching online professional development program​ to help you meet your teacher registration renewal requirements with the Queensland College of Teachers.

The program is a flexible online course and is run through the department's eLearning environment. It will get you up-to-date with the current curriculum frameworks, teaching and learning practices, and legislative and legal responsibilities in contemporary school settings.

Professional learning hubs

Professional Learning H​ubs (PL Hubs) are located throughout the state at Roma, Mt Isa, Rockhampton and Ipswich. Each PL Hub is a centre for professional learning and teaching excellence, delivering support to beginning and new teachers.

Check out our range of scholarships and grants on offer to help support your teaching journey.
