Returning to Teaching – policy and guidelines

The public must be confident that teachers in Queensland are professional, competent and qualified. Teachers who have had a significant absence from, or only irregular contact with, schools or early childhood and care services will normally need to update their knowledge and skills regarding curriculum, policies and legislation if they return to teaching.

At renewal of registration, if a teacher with full registration has not met recency of practice requirements (100 days of teaching within a five year registration period) then a Returning to Teaching (RTT) condition is applied.
