Supervising professional experience
The Queensland Professional Experience Reporting Framework
The Queensland Professional Experience Reporting Framework has been developed by representatives of:
- the Department of Education
- Independent Schools Queensland
- the Queensland Catholic Education Commission
- the Queensland College of Teachers
- the Queensland Deans of Education Forum
to provide consistency and clarity across state and non-state school sectors by introducing a streamlined and moderated approach to the assessment of professional experience in Queensland.
The QCT has produced a companion document to further support supervising teachers in making evidence-based, consistent decisions and providing constructive feedback about the preservice teachers’ demonstration of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Graduate career stage).
Assessing the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers Graduate career stage: Evidence guide for teachers supervising professional experience placements in Queensland schools (PDF, 4654KB).
