What is the QT Model?

The QT Model clearly articulates teaching that makes a difference for students. Applicable across grades, subjects and approaches to teaching, the QT Model addresses curriculum, student engagement and classroom equity. It was developed in 2003 by University of Newcastle researchers and has been the NSW Department of Education’s endorsed framework for quality teaching ever since.

The QT Model is at the heart of all our professional development.

Improve student achievement with Quality Teaching Rounds

Quality Teaching Rounds is high impact professional development that makes a significant difference for teachers and students. Using the QT Model and powerful collaborative processes, QTR empowers teachers to analyse and refine their practice.

Two decades of research shows that QTR improves:
  1. Student achievement
  2. Quality of teaching
  3. Teacher morale
