The Queensland Government has released an action plan to help lift the professional standards of teachers and provide schools with greater autonomy.
From 2015, Year 7 will become the first year of high school in Queensland. Find out more about the preparations, the development of Junior Secondary in state schools and the experiences of our Year 7 pilot schools.
Expressions of interest are now open for Queensland state schools to become Independent Public Schools and benefit from increased autonomy, reduced red tape and more opportunities to improve student outcomes.
To support the move of Year 7 to high school in 2015, we require up to 1300 extra passionate secondary teachers. Current primary, secondary and aspiring teachers can register their interest in Junior Secondary now.
The Queensland Government is undertaking extensive consultation with parents, schools, unions and schooling sectors to map out the future of education and create Queensland's first Education Accord.
