It is a condition of permanent employment with the department that teachers may be required to work anywhere in Queensland to meet statewide staffing requirements.
Permanent teachers should expect that they will be required to teach in locations across Queensland, as all teachers are likely to be required to transfer at some stage. This condition applies to all teachers appointed on a permanent basis regardless of location preferences at the time of application for teacher employment.
The conditions of employment summary outlines the entitlements and obligations of state school teachers.
Please read the document to ensure you understand your entitlements and obligations. Where these conditions vary according to your employment status (Permanent, Temporary or Casual) the variance/s will be outlined under each employment condition heading.
The Teacher Transfer Policy (DETE employees only) enables teachers employed on a permanent basis to apply for a transfer to vacancies that exist in other locations on an annual basis. A system of accumulated transfer points, based on the length of service in a specific location, provides the basis for determining the success of requests for transfer, in conjunction with relevant vacancies in each region.
