Welcome back to the new term. The QETA Management Committee hopes that all its members and their families remain well.

Please note that we will soon be discussing arrangements for this year's Annual General Meeting. We will provide information to all members once we have established how this may work this year.

QETA UQ Student Economics Competition 2020

More RBA Teaching Resources

The RBA Education team has added an additional three resources to their suite of materials. These include new Illustrators to summarise ‘Groups in the Labour Market’ and ‘Types of Unemployment’.

They have also created a new Learning Activity – ‘The Future of Work - worksheet’, which provides questions to complement the popular The Future of Work video.

These resources and more are all available from the Education section of the RBA website.

QETA Biennial Conference

Due to the ongoing risks associated with the COVID pandemic, QETA has decided to postpone this year's conference. We had hoped to reschedule this event for later in the year but the ongoing uncertainties have meant that we have had to make a firm decision. At this stage our conference will now be held in 2021. We appreciate the understanding of all members during this difficult time.

However, we are preparing some online resources that should be of interest and use to teacher members. These will take the form of a live online meeting with the proceedings recorded for those members not able to join in at the time. These are planned for late August this year. You will receive information about this in the coming weeks.
