THE QUEENSLAND PLAN : A 30-YEAR VISION FOR QUEENSLAND
RESPONSES FROM THE JCQTA PREDIDENTS' DINNER
Responses from JCQTA Presidents Dinner (09/02/14)
(such as the perception that Queensland students underperform in literacy and numeracy)
As President I invite you to join the JCQTA for 2016. There are many challenges and opportunities facing professional teacher associations in areas of professional learning, curriculum implementation and funding for education. The JCQTA provides a voice to teachers through professional association representation at both state level and at a federal level through the Australian Professional Teachers’ Association (APTA). In meeting the challenges and grasping the opportunities it is important that we support one another and work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes for Queensland students.
Our two major events will be the Presidents’ Dinner on 17 February and the Ros Korkatsis Annual Forum in August. We will be conducting Board Meetings on 20 April, 15 June, and in October. In order to present a united voice on issues that affect us all we require a representative from all our member associations to attend these meetings.
I welcome you and look forward to working together to support the great work you do for your members.
