Teacher registration

Teacher registration

Before you start work in a school, you must have your current teacher registration with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT).

The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APSTs) are used for registration purposes in Queensland.

QCT provisional registration

All new teachers are provisionally registered. Visit the QCT for information on moving from provisional to full registration.

Once you are fully registered, you will need to participate in the renewal of registration process


All new teachers employed in a Queensland state school undergo a six-month probation period This helps us to understand your skills, knowledge and abilities, and to identify areas where you may need support or further development. It also helps you to plan and set career and developmental goals.
