The UQCTP offers professional development and training to a variety of partners.

School Teachers

Teachers from Cairns to the Gold Coat have taken part in face to face teacher professional development activities offered through the UQCTP.  These activities range from subject specific training to the development of critical thinking pedagogies and core skill test preparation. The project has also delivered professional development to teachers in South Africa by invitation of Thinking Schools South Africa across the country.
