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.

Why become a HALT?

Why Become a HALT?

I'm really proud of what I've done. I think it's just reminded me that learning and growth should always be a teacher's first priority, because when we remember that, it keeps us passionate.
