B. Organisation Overview and Performance
B.1 Organisational Overview
The ACT Teacher Quality Institute (TQI) is an independent statutory authority established by the ACT Teacher Quality Institute Act 2010 (TQI Act) to build the professional standing of ACT teachers and to enhance the community's confidence in the teaching profession through professional regulation and practical initiatives to raise teacher quality.
Vision, Mission and Values of the Institute
TQI is a key enabler of a high quality teaching workforce in the ACT.
Teacher quality initiatives build the profession in the ACT and enhance the education of students.
Role, Functions and Services of the Institute
TQI is charged with integrating standards-based quality measures into professional regulation as teachers enter and progress through career stages in the profession in order to enhance student outcomes. TQI emphasises collaboration across school sectors and between teachers, schools and universities. TQI promotes continuous professional learning and development and the professionalism of all teachers in the ACT.
Functions and Services
TQI functions set out in section 11 of the TQI Act are to:
- register or grant permits-to-teach to eligible people
- keep a register of, and records relating to, teachers working or intending to work in the ACT
- promote and encourage the continuous professional learning and development of teachers, and increased levels of skill, knowledge, expertise and professionalism
- determine standards for, facilitate and issue directions for, the ongoing professional learning and development of teachers
- develop and apply codes of practice about the professional conduct of teachers
- determine standards, including assessment and certification standards, for the profession, and
- accredit education programs for pre-service teachers and teachers.
In performing its statutory functions, TQI delivers the following range of services to all sectors of school education, ACT universities providing teacher education, and the teaching profession in the ACT:
- professional regulatory services
- quality assurance of teacher education and professional learning;
- advice and training on standards and certification, accreditation of programs and teacher registration
- facilitation of collaborative practice, and
- promotion of continuing development and professionalism.
Organisational Structure, Environment and Planning Framework
TQI is governed by a Board comprised of key ACT education stakeholders, the teaching profession and the ACT community. Current Board membership is set out in Table 1.
The Chief Executive Officer, Ms Anne Ellis, is responsible for the day-to-day operations of TQI, supported by a small staff of 10.6 FTE.
TQI is a Territory authority for the purposes of the Financial Management Act 1996 (FMA).
By a declaration issued by the Treasurer in February 2012 [Financial Management (Territory Authorities) Declaration 2012 (No. 1)], TQI has been exempted from certain provisions of the FMA. Therefore, TQI is not required to produce a detailed statement of intent, statement of performance, or annual financial statement. However, in accordance with the direction issued by the Minister for Education and Training under section 25 of the TQI Act, TQI is required to provide a summary of its income and expenses each financial year in its annual report.
For the purpose of the Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act 2004, TQI comes within the definition of 'public authority'.
Accordingly, TQI has prepared this annual report to comply with section 6(1) of that Act and in accordance with the requirements referred to in the Chief Minister's Annual Report Directions issued under section 9 of that Act.
Owing to its modest budget and staff resources, TQI has established administrative arrangements with the Education and Training Directorate in relation to minor financial accounting and internal audit matters.
The TQI Strategic Plan is developed on a four-year cycle and is reviewed annually. The current Strategic Plan approved by the Board (for the period 2011-14) identifies the following key focus areas:
- Establish the Institute in line with legislative requirements.
- Implement TQI regulatory responsibilities for teacher registration and accreditation of teacher education courses.
- Lead cross-sectoral implementation of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers to enhance quality education for ACT students.
- Lead cross-sectoral collaboration in teacher quality initiatives with ACT schools and universities.
- Facilitate and participate in national and local research relevant to teacher professional standards and learning.
TQI Governing Board
Section 15(2) of the TQI Act sets out the composition of the TQI Board and requires the Minister to appoint the members of the Board other than the Chief Executive Officer. The appointment of a member, other than the Chief Executive Officer, must be for a term no longer than three years. A person may be reappointed for a further term of three years. The Chief Executive Officer is a non-voting member of the Board.
Remuneration for the Chair is determined by the ACT Remuneration Tribunal in accordance with the provisions of the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1995. Other members of the Board are not entitled to be paid for the exercise of their Board functions.
The Board met on four occasions during the reporting period:
- 9 September 2014

B.2 Performance Analysis
The TQI Act provides an integrated regulatory and quality improvement framework for the teaching profession in the ACT in accordance with national professional standards and national agreements on education reform. The primary focus of the Institute remains the continued professionalisation of the ACT teaching workforce.
The 2014-15 reporting year is the final year of the Institute's first Strategic Plan. Key achievements against the Strategic Plan over this reporting year include:
Consolidating the Regulatory Framework for the Teaching Profession in the ACT
Key elements of the regulatory framework established by the TQI Act and subordinate legislation include the requirements that
- only approved teachers under the TQI Act can work in ACT schools
- all teachers must comply with the TQI Code of Professional Practice and Conduct
- teachers must report on 20 hours of professional learning completed by them in the previous 12 months to renew their registration.
Over the reporting period, TQI conducted an extensive communication program to ensure that all ACT teachers received advice about the regulatory requirements that impact on them. For example, the Code of Professional Practice and Conduct was promoted to all teachers through their registration documentation, through a poster campaign made available to all ACT schools, and through induction workshops for beginning teachers.
TQI refined and strengthened support for early career teachers and mentor/supervising teachers by the development of separate guides for provisionally registered teachers and for their guidance panels. The Guide for Provisionally Registered Teachers and the Guide for Professional Guidance Panels of Provisionally Registered Teachers support the progression of beginning teachers from provisional to full registration. They provide guidance on links to the Professional Standards for Teachers and evidence-based documentation of teaching practice. The Guide for Professional Guidance Panels also supports integration of full registration assessment with existing employer probation and professional learning processes. TQI has provided 12 cross-sectoral workshops for beginning teachers and teacher-mentors/supervisors on progression to full registration, with over 280 teachers attending.
TQI also completed implementation of the mandatory professional learning for teacher registration in the registration renewal process for 2015. Of the 7114 teachers renewing registration for 2015, 93% (6625) fully met the mandatory professional learning requirements for registration in the year preceding renewal. The remaining 7% (489) arranged professional learning variation plans with TQI to meet their obligations.
Under the regulatory framework, there are important obligations imposed on all employers of teachers in ACT schools to help support the integrity of that framework and to help maintain community confidence in all ACT teachers. Over the reporting period, employers in all school sectors took action on these reporting obligations under the legislation. The Institute resolved with employers and teachers two cases of potential non-compliance with ss.28 and 29 of the Act during the reporting period. TQI also suspended the registrations of three teachers and cancelled one.
Embedding High Quality Professional Learning and Development of Teachers
The mandatory professional learning prescribed for renewal of teacher registration in the ACT is comparable to that required of professionally registered teachers in other Australian jurisdictions which have implemented the national education reform agreements on teacher quality improvement. It brings the profession in the ACT into line with similar requirements for other professions in the Territory and provides a range of flexible means by which teachers can meet the requirements for renewal of their registration.
The 2014-15 reporting period was the initial year of implementation of mandatory professional learning. Consequently, TQI undertook a range of communication measures to ensure teachers received advice about their obligations. This included an online multimedia presentation, workshops and weekly drop-in sessions, as well as a promotional poster campaign ('It's time to log on!') reminding teachers of the need to record their professional learning.
In the reporting period, TQI also upgraded its online professional learning recording system to provide improved support to teachers and supervisors. The teacher online Professional Learning Profile incorporates links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers to facilitate development of individual teacher learning goals and activities and recording of professional reflections. Online and printable graphs and data for both teachers and supervisors facilitate the management of professional learning at a school and individual teacher level throughout the school year.
As an important quality assurance measure, TQI also assisted providers of professional learning programs who were seeking accreditation of their programs by providing extensive advice on the standards-based documentation required for accreditation. TQI has also provided the data available from teacher evaluations of accredited programs to the relevant program providers so that quality improvements can be taken into consideration by the providers for future programs.
Details of programs accredited 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 are listed in Attachment 1 to this report.
Embedding Professional Standards in Teaching Practice
TQI believes that the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers provide a key tool for raising the quality of the ACT teaching workforce.
To help embed the Standards in the teaching practice of ACT teachers, over the reporting period TQI:
- supported individual teachers seeking higher levels of certification (against the 'Highly Accomplished' and 'Lead' levels of the Standards) through information sessions and evidence preparation workshops
- supported the pool of Certification trained assessors in the ACT, through
- supplementing their numbers by overseeing the training of 21 additional assessors
- assessor writing workshops which provide professional support to existing nationally trained certification assessors in the ACT, and
- assessor refresher workshops which ensure the quality of annual ACT certification processes
- provided a range of on-line aids for teachers (e.g. digital portfolio opportunities for professional evidence and analysis of practice by teachers)
- contributed to national moderation and evaluation of certification processes.
TQI chairs the national network on professional standards of the Australian Teacher Regulatory Authorities (ATRA). The inaugural meeting of this network held at TQI on 9 February 2015 explored variations in jurisdictional approaches to standards-based assessments for regulatory and teacher quality purposes.
Progressing Pre-service Teacher Education Program Accreditation
Under s.11(1)(g) of the Act, TQI has the function to accredit education programs for pre-service teachers. The Act further specifies in s.76(a) the criteria to be applied for the accreditation of teacher education programs.
Over the reporting period, TQI:
- developed its Initial Teacher Education Program Accreditation policy, which was approved by the Board at its September 2014 meeting
- completed the accreditation of the teacher education program for the University of Canberra Master of Teaching (M.Teach) degree
- began the accreditation process for the University of Canberra primary and secondary B.Ed. degrees
- provided accreditation training for expert panel members and university educators involved in the program accreditation processes
- hosted and presented at a number of workshops for pre-service teachers, university educators, and supervising teachers with the University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University (Canberra), and
- conducted consultations for the TQI project on the Professional Experience component of Initial Teacher Education programs with over 250 principals, teachers, pre-service teachers and university educators.
The 2015 Report of the federal Teacher Education Ministerial Advisory Group (TEMAG) cited the ACT Government submission to the TEMAG inquiry into initial teacher education as providing examples of best practice. The collaborative career-progression model for pre-service teacher education, which has been pursued by TQI since its inception, was highly recommended by the report of the TEMAG inquiry.
The Australian Government response to the TEMAG report identified five areas of focus for further improvements to the quality of the teaching workforce and has tasked the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) with progressing them in collaboration with education stakeholders, including teacher regulatory authorities in the States and Territories:
- Stronger quality assurance of teacher education courses.
- Rigorous selection for entry to teacher education courses.
- Improved and structured practical experience for teacher education students.
- Robust assessment of graduates to ensure classroom readiness.
- National research and workforce planning capabilities.
The principal recommendations of the TEMAG report are already in progress throughout many TQI initiatives and practices and all relate closely to TQI responsibilities.
In view of the legislative responsibilities of TQI, and the progress already in train in the ACT on the majority of the TEMAG recommendations, the Minister requested TQI to take the leading role in the ACT implementation of the TEMAG report recommendations. The TQI Board's Professional Experience Committee has been re-constituted as the Initial Teacher Education Committee in acknowledgement of the key importance of this work. It includes representatives from all key ACT education stakeholders including employers, teachers, ACT Universities providing Initial Teacher Education and teacher unions.
TQI continues to place high priority on facilitating collaborative practices across the teaching profession as a whole in the ACT.
Over the reporting period, TQI:
- continued its cross-sectoral teacher mentoring network with meetings each term
- initiated a cross-sectoral beginning teacher network to support early-career teachers and their supervisors and mentors, and
- supported research examining the experience of teachers moving from provisional to full registration conducted jointly by Ms Mary Gallagher at the Australian Catholic University (Canberra) and Dr Misty Adoniou at University of Canberra.
TQI also continues to maintain strategic relationships with national bodies such as AITSL, ATRA, the Australian Council for Educational Leadership (ACEL) and the Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER).
Over the reporting period, TQI:
- played a key role in the first national Certification moderation between certifying authorities held in July 2014 and February 2015
- facilitated the engagement of State and Territory regulatory authorities in the National Teacher Workforce Data project (NTWD), to develop the NTWD report released on 12 November 2014 at the National Teacher Workforce Evidence Forum held at the Australian Government Department of Education, and
- presented as part of an expert panel at the forum on opportunities for collaboration in gathering teacher workforce evidence.
Cross-sectoral panel with Louise Hanlon (DOE) and Professor John Hattie (AITSL) discussing the TEMAG report.
TQI will continue to facilitate the embedding of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers into teaching practice in ACT schools. Demand from ACT teachers for certification against the higher levels of the standards is expected to increase as a result of workplace changes affecting a significant proportion of teachers.
TQI will also continue to promote high quality professional learning and professional engagement by teachers.
A major focus of TQI developmental effort will be on work flowing from the TEMAG Report and national initiatives directed towards improving Initial Teacher Education and accreditation processes, as well as on reporting of teacher workforce data.
The TQI Strategic Plan is being re-developed for the period 2015-18.
TQI received funding in the ACT Budget 2015-16 for enhancements to its business system to support improved recording of the professional learning and professional practice requirements of the regulatory framework. Work will commence before the end of 2015 and is expected to be completed by 2019.
B.4 Risk Management
TQI pursues integrated risk management in all planning and operational processes. Risks particular to TQI arising from its legislative mandate are identified and assessed for management at a range of levels within TQI.
Strategic Risks are identified as a part of the development and review of the TQI Strategic Plan. Strategic risks, their assessment and treatments, are approved by the TQI Board. Operations/Service level risks are identified in TQI service standards, policies and procedures. The responsibility for assessing and responding to operational level risks lies with the Chief Executive Officer and TQI staff. Project risks are identified in project plans and for ICT projects within the project guidelines approved by Shared Services. The responsibility for assessing and responding to project risks lies with TQI project managers and project steering committees.
B.5 Internal Audit
TQI is covered by the audit arrangements of the Education and Training Directorate audit framework.
