The QCT has developed a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Policy and Framework. This is required under the Education (Queensland College of Teachers) Act 2005, section 30 (1). The purpose of the CPD Policy and Framework is to recognise the importance of teacher engagement in continuing professional development and to outline the expectations for renewal of registration. The CPD Policy and Framework has regard to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) and states the type of CPD required and the minimum amount of CPD a fully registered teacher must undertake. For renewal of registration every five years, fully registered teachers must have undertaken the annual CPD required under the CPD Policy and Framework.

Each year the QCT identifies a random sample of registered teachers and requests that they supply records and/or evidence to establish that they have met their CPD requirements.
The audit is used by the QCT to decide on renewal of registration, including, for example, whether registration will be renewed with a condition.
