The QCT collects various types of data about teachers as part of the registration process. As the teacher regulatory authority in Queensland, the QCT is in a unique position to monitor teacher registration numbers and demographic data, analyse this information and identify trends.
The data used in this section was drawn from the QCT Register of Teachers in March 2014.
Registered Teachers’ residential postcodes have been used to map where they are located in Queensland. The maps show for each Local Government Area (LGA) the number of teachers overall, the number with each registration status, the average age of teachers and the proportion of teachers aged over 50.
All registered teachers
Teachers with full registration
Teachers with provisional registration
Average age of all registered teachers
Registered teachers aged 50 years and over

There are over 100,000 registered teachers in Queensland. The 2016 annual school census has revealed that two-thirds are employed in a permanent or long-term temporary teaching position. Who makes up the other third? What are they doing? What does the teacher supply pool look like now and in the immediate future?
The QCT is interested to know more and share this information with teachers and employers. In July the QCT is surveying 10,000 teachers to profile the available workforce in Queensland.
A similar survey was conducted in 2014. The 2014 results are published below in a short report and video.

This teacher profile report (based on data held in September 2014) provides valuable insight into the current circumstances and future career plans of registered teachers who weren't in permanent teaching positions in Queensland schools.
The Teacher profile: 2013 Queensland Graduate Teachers report and accompanying infographic helps us understand who our beginning teachers are so we are better able to support and engage with them during their important first years in the teaching profession.
