High-quality professional development for teachers

High quality professional development (PD) helps teachers to continuously improve and maintain their teaching practice and develop their careers.  The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) coordinates a rigorous process of endorsing PD providers. Once endorsed, providers can deliver Quality Teaching Council (QTC) Registered PD that contributes to mandatory requirements for maintaining teacher accreditation.

Information for school providers

Schools will soon be able to apply to become endorsed providers. This will help recognise training and PD run by the school, and support teachers to complete QTC Registered PD hours necessary to maintain their accreditation.

Information for PD providers

Interested PD providers can apply to BOSTES to become an endorsed provider. Once you have completed a rigorous assessment and approval process, providers can register course/s within the online account tool where teachers and schools can search for QTC Registered PD. Completing a minimum amount of QTC Registered PD is a requirement for maintaining teacher accreditation at the various levels.

Approval process for becoming an endorsed PD provider

Promotional Guidelines

Once endorsed, you can promote the status of your professional learning offering/s as QTC Registered PD. You may also use the BOSTES QTC logo to help teachers to easily identify the QTC Registered PD available at each of the three levels of accreditation. The logo communicates that completing your course contributes to mandatory requirements for maintaining teacher accreditation.
