Highly Accomplished and Lead Teacher certification
As a Highly Accomplished and Lead Teacher certifying authority, Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) provides a nationally consistent approach to certifying teachers according to the advanced career stages of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST).
Certification, which is overseen by AITSL, provides a way for outstanding Queensland independent school teachers to be recognised for their expertise and their impact on colleagues and students.
Teachers certified by ISQ as either a Highly Accomplished, or Lead teacher will be recognised nationally by all systems, states and territories who participate in national certification.
