The ECTA Journal: Educating Young Children is published at three issues per annum and is aimed at promoting the work of early childhood educators across the State. All financial members receive a copy of each journal as part of their membership.

Registered Teachers – Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements

Registered teachers are advised to note the Queensland College of Teachers endorsed position on professional reading, accessing online resources and viewing video-streamed materials as contributing to their CPD requirements for renewal of teacher registration.

As ECTA cannot verify your engagement with online or other print or electronic material certificates cannot be issued for viewing of online materials such as video-streamed presentations, materials in our secure area or DVDs supplied with Journals.
ECTA recommends you record these activities on your QCT record of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) along with readings from ECTA’s Educating Young Children journal under the category Professional Reading/Viewing. Evidence of the outcome of your engagement with these valuable professional development opportunities will be required.

Evidence can include examples of:

  • how you have incorporated ideas and/or strategies in your planning for individuals and groups of children,
  • planning for parent information sessions and/or support materials
  • the influence on your planning and approach to teaching and learning.

Your CPD record is a list of your professional development activities completed during the year. It should include details of the area of professional development, the topic and provider of the activity, the date and duration of the activity and which professional standards it related to. This record, together with the actual evidence of each activity is what an individual teacher would show QCT if audited.
