Welcome to The QLD History Teachers' Association.
            

WHAT'S ON?

            

We are a voluntary organisation with an executive membership of Primary and Secondary History Teachers, Academics and Educationalists.

Our aim is to foster an interest in History and the teaching of History, but especially to support and assist History teachers in Queensland.

Our website provides information on the available competitions for students and teachers, as well as available professional development, resources and upcoming events.
