Professional development (PD) & events

The QCAA delivers professional development to help teachers implement syllabuses for the Preparatory Year through to Year 12. These activities are designed to explain the syllabuses and provide expert advice and guidance about planning and assessing. Attendance is not compulsory.

Participants who attend, will receive certification appropriate for registration renewal under the QCT's Continuing Professional Development Framework. Please note that certificates are not issued for some QCAA events e.g. forums, information sessions etc.

The QCAA jointly funds these activities with schools by providing the program resources. Schools may be required to contribute a fee for each participant. The QCAA does not fund teacher release, travel or accommodation costs.

Please note that events may be cancelled or combined if insufficient registrations are received.

Note: Registration fees are adjusted annually to incorporate changes to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
