Have your say in the election of three practising teachers to represent teachers on the profession’s governing board and influence decisions affecting the teaching profession in Queensland.
The current term of appointment of the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) Board concludes at the end of 2021, which means three practising teachers must be elected before then for a new term of appointment commencing in January 2022. Of the three elected practising teachers, two must be from the State school sector and one from the non-State school sector.
Nominations for the three positions were open from 5 March to 26 March 2021. The ballot is taking place from 21 May to 11 June 2021 (Election Day). All voting is online.
The election is being managed on behalf of the QCT by GoVote, an independent specialist election management company. Voting instructions were sent by GoVote to all eligible voters by email on 21 May. All teachers on the QCT register as of 5 March this year are eligible to vote.
A QCT Board member works with other Board members to ensure the QCT’s strategic direction is consistent with its legislative requirements to uphold the standards of the teaching profession, maintain public confidence in the teaching profession, and protect the public by ensuring education in schools is provided in a professional and competent way by approved teachers.
The Board normally holds eight to ten half-day meetings a year. Members are expected to also serve on the QCT committees which assist the Board to carry out its functions.
