To assist schools to lift teaching standards and give schools the support they need to provide a safe and supportive learning environment and the best educational outcomes for their students.
Professional Learning (PL) Hubs have been established to develop and deliver professional learning programs to support the induction of early career teachers, and to enhance the professional learning and capability of established teachers in response to specific local needs and regional priorities. The PL Hubs operate under the following 3 pillars:
- supporting beginning and experienced teachers in identified locations across Queensland state schools
- enhancing the existing Mentoring Beginning Teacher (MBT) program to develop beginning teacher capability
- strengthening and developing partnerships with existing
Teacher Education Centres of Excellence and higher education institutions to focus on attracting and developing preservice teachers for employment.
There are currently 2 PL Hubs operating across Queensland.
Duration of program
Funding currently approved to the end of June 2020.
In the PL Hubs context, 'early career teachers' include Initial Teacher Education (ITE) graduates (within up to 5 years of graduation) and teachers who may have transferred into the local region for the first time (established teachers). While the primary focus is aimed at recent ITE graduates, each PL Hub may choose to broaden their scope as long as this falls within the budget provided or additional funding is sourced locally.
Allocation of funds
Funding is provided to an existing list of 2 centres.
How to apply
This is a fixed list of identified centres. There is no application process to access these funds.
