The QUTeach@Redcliffe program

Report 

The QUTeach@Redcliffe program enables senior secondary students from a disadvantaged region of Queensland to commence teacher education degrees while completing school. The program emerged as the result of equity concerns in relation to students who face barriers to university entrance, in terms of social, racial or financial disadvantage. It was also motivated by a desire to generate a stream of new teachers who come from the region and understand its circumstances, and who can relate well to the school students they teach. Introduced in mid-2008, QUTeach is a collaboration between Queensland University of Technology and Queensland's Bays Cluster of State High Schools. It is currently in pilot form.
