Syllabus workshop allocation process

Principals are reminded to commence the workshop allocation process for teachers who will be implementing one of the first 15 approved General syllabuses from 2019. As further syllabuses are approved, they will be added to School Portal and QCAA will contact you regarding further workshop allocations.
