Professional development requirements
All teachers, including Instrumental Music teachers and instructors, are required to do a minimum amount of professional development each calendar year to maintain teacher registration and demonstrate a commitment to continuing professional development. The Queensland College of Teachers (QCOT) has outlined these requirements in their
Renewal of teacher registration page.
With the introduction of flexible staff professional development days, there is also a requirement for teachers to complete a number of professional development hours outside of rostered duty time. For further information on this, please access the
Staff professional development page on the Education website.
