Teacher Advisory Group

The teacher advisory group brings together educators from various levels and sectors of education in Queensland, to assist in the development of Parliamentary Education resources. Parliamentary Education will work with the group to improve awareness of the role of the Legislative Assembly, its committees and members in our democratic system of government.

PURPOSE

  • Provide insight and advice on the development of activities, events and resources in line with the curriculum and contemporary classroom practice
  • Identify opportunities for broadening the reach of the program, particularly to engage with educators and students in regional and remote communities

COMMITMENT

Group members are appointed for 12 month terms, and may seek continued membership. Parliamentary Education may renew nominations during the 12 month term if needs arise.

The Teacher Advisory Group meets quarterly. Advice may be sought from panel members in between meetings via email or phone appointment.
