Professional Development Day

Professional Development Day postponed

In line with the Queensland Government’s Back to School Plan regarding COVID-19, we have postponed our Professional Development day to limit our face-to-face activity with school staff during this period. Whilst it is an unfortunate decision to make, the safety of our school community always comes first.


You're invited to USC's exclusive Professional Development Day. We’ll bring you the latest updates about USC programs and initiatives as well as feature special guest speaker Dr Emily Ross. Join us for unique insight into current curriculum influences and hear from Dr Ross highlighting how to ensure minimum disruption during a time of curriculum change.

At this free event, you will:

  • Hear from USC’s Dr Emily Ross about the latest insights into the current issues driving curriculum change.
  • Discover what research suggests are the impacts of curriculum change.
  • Find out what suite of activities the USC Student Recruitment team has in store for 2022.
  • Hear the latest news and updates on USC’s future-focused programs.
  • Receive accredited professional development hours in alignment with the QCT professional standards.
