30 hours professional development does seem a lot. I find that professional organisations such as ETAQ are good. They have 3 seminars a year and that should build up the hours a bit. ETAQ usually offers good workshops and guest speakers and they are a very positive association. I've been with them since I was at uni.

30 hours is almost a week's work. It does seem a lot. Right now, I'm doing a Photography degree and, as an Art Teacher, I'm hoping that the additional degree is a form of Professional Development. Maybe one of the other teachers can fill me in. Also, I know that TRACER was doing professional development seminars and combine that with ETAQ {English teachers} and I think QATA [Art Teachers' Association] also do seminars and coffee mornings, it all helps. Hope what I have written makes sense. I am in a bit of a hurry.

In typical Supply-Teacher fashion, when I didn't find what I needed- I made it myself! I hope to facilitate a range of workshops where we can gather and swap ideas. The first workshop is aimed at Beginning Supply Teachers....

I have not read the whole of this thread so what I am about to write may have already been brought up and not be relevan. Regarding hours of PD we are expected to do as supply teachers it is actually dependant on the amount of work we do. 30 hrs a week is required of full-time teachers and less depending on the amount of hrs you work in a year for eg:-

Table 2. CPD Amount: requirements for teachers employed full-time and less than full-time Days/ hours of teaching employment per year CPD requirements per year

Teaching full time At least 30 hours
200 days and above [1000 hours and above] At least 30 hours
160 - 199 days [800 – 999 hours] At least 25 hours
120 – 159 days [600 – 799 hours] At least 20 hours
80 - 119 days [400 – 599 hours] At least 15 hours
40 – 79 days [200 – 399 hours] At least 10 hours

follow this link if you want to know all the requirements and thorough information of what is considered PD:-

if link does not work the info can be located on QLD colledge of teachers site.

hope this is helpful to someone
