The second year of Great Results Guarantee funding to improve student outcomes in 2015 has been announced. Next year the Queensland Government will invest $183 million in additional funding direct to schools for them to use for maximising student learning.
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.
