Education and Arts
ACU’s Faculty of Education and Arts is pleased to welcome you to our Education Professional Learning Hub.
We have created this space to provide you with easy access to information about the range of professional development programs and opportunities being offered through the Faculty.
At ACU we have a long history as one of Australia’s pre-eminent providers of teacher education and our commitment to supporting and developing teachers does not end upon their graduation; we are committed to supporting current practising teachers throughout all stages of their careers.
Through our professional development programs we, in collaboration with external partners, have created a diverse range of opportunities for educators to build their capacity, deepen their knowledge, and continuously strengthen and expand their skill sets. Our programs are flexibly delivered across face-to-face, online and blended modes, and respond to the needs of educators in diverse contexts including early learning, primary, secondary and adult learning settings.
Not content to support high performance in the classroom only, we are also committed to supporting aspiring leaders to build the leadership skills needed to make a real difference to education practice and policy.

- Queensland-based educators working as relief teachers or who would like to return to teaching after a significant break, or those with a Return to Teaching condition on their registration certificates, can access our Queensland College of Teachers (QCT)-approved Return to Teaching in Schools program.
- Sitting outside the Faculty, ACU’s Executive Education also offers professional development both within and beyond the education domain, with a specialisation in providing leadership development training across a range of organisational contexts.
