Support crucial in the early years

Topics : BEnetThe Good & The Bad

Our union offers a range of professional development (PD) opportunities to support early career teacher members.


Training will be held in Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast over the April school holidays on a range of key topics including behaviour management, lesson planning, inclusive education, workplace rights and teacher registration.


These sessions complement the online professional development courses available through the Teacher Learning Network (TLN) to all IEUA-QNT teacher members in the first five years of their career.


IEUA-QNT Assistant Secretary Brad Hayes said teachers in the early years need access to quality professional development and support, particularly given statistics which show 1 in 3 teachers leave the profession within the first five years.


“The early years of a teacher’s career are often the most exciting, but they also tend to be the most challenging,” Mr Hayes said.


“Members have identified quality professional development as being particularly important, both to help them navigate their way in the profession and to meet their registration requirements.


“By offering online training we are able to support regionally and remotely located members who often find they have fewer PD options.


“Our union is proud to offer early career teacher members access to quality PD as a key component of their union membership.”
