A teacher aide for every Prep class in QLD

Every Queensland state school Prep class will have a Prep teacher aide from the beginning of the 2018 school year. In 2017, almost 600 schools received supplementary resourcing for Prep teacher aides.

From 2018, over 100 additional full-time equivalent teacher aides will be allocated to ensure that all prep teachers in QLD state schools can be supported by a dedicated teacher aide.

Teacher aides play a valuable role assisting teachers by developing resources, supporting students’ learning, and helping with duties in the classroom.
