Professional development for ACT teachers

Selected courses available online in the Mental Health & Wellbeing of Young People Online Learning Hub are eligible for TQI accredited professional development.


How claiming your points works

On the online hub, accreditation is available for all courses that include a TQI Documentation area (ones that do not are still pending). To gain professional development points, the documentation must be completed for each session.

Each week, TQI are notified for all registered teachers who have completed two hours of learning and the associated documentation.

Every two hours of learning you complete (triggered by completing 2 hours worth of sessions and TQI documentation) will be applied to your TQI register. For example, if you have completed 2 x 45 minute sessions and a 30 minute session and all the quizzes, 2 hours of learning will be applied, this will occur again once you have accumulated the next 2 hours of learning.
