The Department of Education,Training and Employment utilises frameworks to support and guide employees in developing high standards of practice throughout their career.
These frameworks articulate core values, knowledge, skills and attributes that, when incorporated into practice, enable employees to deliver high quality outcomes in their work.
The Capability and Leadership Framework provides a common language to support consistent whole-of-government capability and leadership development, and is designed to help ensure that the Queensland Public Service (QPS) has the capability and leadership skills to meet future challenges.
The Developing Performance Framework is a process supported by tools and resources that assists all employee groups to develop their performance. It aims to promote and maintain a positive workplace culture that is based on quality conversations and constructive feedback about work related practice and performance.
Education Queensland Principals' Capability and Leadership Framework is a multi-layered self-reflective framework designed to focus principal performance development planning and enrich principal capability development. It is based on Leadership Matters, Education Queensland's five priorities outlined in the Roadmap and school leader expectations relating to the Teaching and Learning Audit domains. This framework is available on the Learning Place.
Education Queensland Deputy Principals' Capability and Leadership Framework and Heads of Programs' Capability and Leadership Framework are multi-layered self-reflective frameworks designed to enrich instructional leadership, capability development and provide a focus for performance development planning. These frameworks are also available on the Learning Place.
Education Queensland Professional Standards for Teachers is an aspirational framework, which describes the capabilities required by teachers to effectively perform their role in Queensland state schools. Transition to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers will commence in 2013.
Smart Classrooms Professional Development Framework is a guide for planning professional learning with ICT. The framework is designed for teachers to reflect on and strengthen their beliefs and practices in using ICT for teaching and learning, regardless of which key learning area or phase or learning they teach. This framework reflects the statements and indicators set out within Standard 6 of the Professional Standards for Teachers.
The Standards for professional development make explicit the expectations held by the Department in relation to the design and delivery of professional development activities initiated or undertaken by all Departmental personnel.
It is intended that each of these key documents will inform professional development programs devised for all employees within the Department of Education, Training and Employment.
