Masters Programme

The School’s dedicated teachers are the key reason for the School’s academic success. As lifelong learners themselves, all our teachers constantly evolve within their roles as educators and mentors to their students. To help facilitate this growth, The Rockhampton Grammar School offers a unique Master of Educational Leadership programme to all teachers - the only program of its kind in Australia. 

The partnership with CQžžƵ enables teachers to acquire new understanding in areas specific to their teaching needs. 

The costs of the programme is factored into the School’s existing annual professional development funding for teachers.
