Professional Development 

Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR) is a form of professional development with demonstrated positive effects on the quality of teaching, teacher morale and school culture. Current research is investigating, under rigorous conditions, the impact of QTR on student outcomes.

  1. Over the next four years, Quality Teaching Rounds (QTR) professional development will be brought to more than 34,000 teachers across Australia.
  2. Two-day QTR workshops can be provided face-to-face or online and tailored to your school/community of schools, in addition to our scheduled series of workshops.
  3. Workshops are currently scheduled throughout NSW, with two free places per school for NSW Department of Education teachers and leaders.
