A QMEA key teacher is appointed and supported at each school. This person is the first point of call for QMEA Project Officers. In addition, QMEA may work with other teachers to design, develop and implement programs, and support programs being offered within the school.
QMEA supports teachers within its schools in a number of ways including:
Curriculum – QMEA supports the development of curriculum contextualised to the resources sector. QSMART and a number of robotics units exist, and QMEA is in the process of developing contextualised LNG units with links to the Australian Curriculum and senior Biology and Engineering Technology curriculum.
Conferences – QMEA supports the attendance at selected conferences which offer teacher and student workshops.
Professional Development – QMEA offers a range of professional development opportunities for teachers including workshop and conference attendance, webinars and site tours. Full details can be found here.
