Teaching Queensland's Future

Teaching Queensland’s Future is the Queensland Government’s 5-year strategy to:

  • meet the increasing demand for teachers in our state school classrooms
  • build the capability, confidence and agility of our teaching workforce
  • ensure a sustainable supply of teachers who will deliver quality learning outcomes for the future.

Our plan

The focus of the Teaching Queensland's Future strategy (PDF, 769KB) is across 5 areas.

Workforce planning – we will understand our teacher supply and demand and support schools to implement effective workforce planning.

Attraction – we will promote the profession of teaching, diversify our workforce and help people start their teacher training.

Talent management – we will make more teachers permanent and enable teachers to move locations, while supporting their career progression and the needs of schools and communities.

Capability – we will enhance professional development for teachers, offer quality on-the-job experiences for teachers in training and equip our school leaders for the future.

Wellbeing – we will support the health and wellbeing of our teachers and school leaders.
