QLD State School Staffing Allocations (point) 2015

This dataset contains point level state funded staffing allocations as at the eighth day of the school year (Day 8) 2015. All allocations are Full Time Equivalent (FTE), except for teacher aides which are hours per week. School principals assign teachers within their schools in a way that best meets the needs of students and achieves class size targets. Special schools receive teacher numbers on the basis of student numbers and their special needs. Schools of Distance Education receive teacher FTEs according to the intensity of service required to support the learning of their enrolled students. Schools may have staff funded from other sources (e.g. Commonwealth).
