Highly Accomplished & Lead Teachers
Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) is a Highly Accomplished and Lead Teacher (HALT) certifying authority.
Certification is overseen by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) and provides a way for outstanding Queensland independent school teachers to be recognised for their expertise and their impact on colleagues and students. Teachers applying for certification undergo a rigorous evaluation process that involves gathering evidence of their teaching practices, classroom observations and peer and student reviews.
The nationally recognised certification provides a consistent approach to certifying teachers according to the advanced career stages of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST).
Teachers certified by ISQ as either a Highly Accomplished, or Lead Teacher - the two most advanced levels of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers - will be recognised nationally by all systems, states and territories that participate in national certification.
