eNews is an email bulletin sent approximately every four to six weeks during the school year to all teachers for whom the QCT holds an up-to-date email address.
The purpose of eNews is to advise teachers of matters concerning their teacher registration and forthcoming events that may be of interest to them, to provide information on professional standards and professional conduct, and to update teachers on QCT activities and recent publications from the QCT.
Earlier issues of eNews can be accessed from the QCT's Publication archive.

The aim of the Research Digest (published 2007 to 2015) is to summarise key research findings on current topical issues in schooling, and draw out their implications for teachers. Each digest focusses on a single topic and provides a review of major messages from the research on the issue. Included are links to useful websites and suggestions for further reading.
