Teacher Education Centres of Excellence

In 2011 under the National Partnership for Improving Teacher Quality, five Teacher Education Centres of Excellence (TECE) were established to improve the professional experience component of initial teacher education programs. In 2014, a sixth TECE was established in Logan.

Each TECE has a specific focus aimed at identifying and developing high quality preservice teachers for employment in high priority state schools across Queensland.

For more information on each of the six TECE centres or to register your interest in a TECE, please visit the Teach Queensland site.

If you still have further questions, please email the TECE team.
