Queensland Civil & Administrative Tribunal
On 1 December 2009 the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) commenced operation. QCAT replaced the former Teachers Disciplinary Committee.
QCAT conducts disciplinary proceedings against teachers following a referral of a disciplinary matter by the QCT or the PP&C Committee. For disciplinary proceedings QCAT must be constituted by three members of QCAT: a legally qualified member who is familiar with school environments; a registered teacher; and a person who is not a registered teacher.
QCAT can also review decisions made by the QCT or the PP&C Committee.
