The Queensland Teachers Union was formed in 1889 when seven teachers' unions met for a conference at the School of Art in Brisbane. In 1917 the QTU was granted industrial registration, giving it exclusive coverage of the state school system. Later that year, the first teachers’ award in Australia was registered in Queensland. The QTU celebrated its 12oth anniversary in 2009.
