Learning and Teaching Services

The purpose of this directorate is to lead and manage policy development, strategic directions, resourcing and specialist professional support for learning and teaching services within and across schools and colleges in the Archdiocese of Brisbane. 

Our focus is on improving the learning outcomes of all students who attend our schools and colleges through teaching practices and processes that are data-informed, inclusive and attentive to student wellbeing.

Personnel in the three directorate teams of Learning and Teaching, Student Learning and Wellbeing, and Learning and Teaching Data work collaboratively particularly with School Service Centre personnel to ensure that Archdiocesan, school and student learning and teaching priorities are appropriately delivered, resourced and aligned with Archdiocesan vision and , mission and strategic goals for education.
