The QT Model has resonated with teachers throughout the past two decades. Teachers tell us they value that the Model builds on a solid research foundation, honours the complexity of teaching, and respects what teachers already know and do.
At its core is a simple premise to provide teachers with a conceptual lens and common language to guide discussions and analysis of pedagogy.
The research into and scaling of QTR continue.
In 2023 the federal government announced a national program to expand QTR as part of its National Teacher Workforce Action Plan. Strengthening Induction through QTR seeks to support 1,600 beginning and experienced teachers over the next four years, aiming to improve retention, teaching quality and student outcomes.

Additional research projects continue to investigate the impact of the QT Model and QTR in various contexts including for higher education, initial teacher education, inclusive education, hospital schools, in assessment practice, and supports required to enact positive school change in disadvantaged communities.
