Frameworks and Standards

The Department of Education and Training 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 which, 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 has the capability and leadership skills to meet future challenges.

The Public Service Commission provides Executive Performance and Development Frameworks External Link to assist executives in managing the delivery of their responsibilities, implementing the government's reform agenda and meeting departmental commitments.

The Australian Professional Standard for Principals External Link provides a public statement which sets out what principals are expected to know, understand and do to achieve their work.

The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers External Link describe the professional knowledge, professional practice and professional engagement required of teachers.

The Queensland State Schools Annual Performance Review processes provide a system for teachers, for heads of program and for principals and deputy principals and to identify and reflect on key areas of their performance and development in the workplace over a 12-month cycle.

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.

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.

Each of these key documents informs professional development programs devised for all employees within the Department of Education and Training.
