Our decisions

Under the Education (Queensland College of Teachers) Act 2005 the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) makes decisions in matters relating to the Act.

The decision-making functions of the QCT include:

  • deciding applications for registration or for permission to teach
  • deciding applications to move from provisional to full registration
  • deciding applications for review of conditions on registration
  • deciding applications for renewal of registration
  • deciding applications for certification as a Highly Accomplished Teacher or Lead Teacher
  • deciding applications for renewal of certification
  • deciding applications for internal review of QCT decisions
  • deciding applications for accreditation of initial teacher education programs
  • deciding what action to take on complaints against teachers
  • deciding practice and conduct matters involving teachers

The criteria and processes for most of these decisions are indicated in our legislation and our policies.

The aggregated outcomes of our decisions are indicated in our annual reports.

Certain decisions made by the QCT may be appealed to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT). For further information regarding appeals visit QCAT’s website.
