Funding from the Commonwealth Quality Teacher Programme (CQTP) has reached Victorian schools through the State and Territory projects component of the CQTP, and through two national strategic projects, namely the Boys Education Lighthouse Schools project and the Australian Teachers Prizes for Excellence project.

Under the State and Territory component of the CQTP, funds were provided for a wide range of professional learning activities for teachers. Total funding allocations are reported below but it is not possible to tell what proportion of these CQTP funds was provided directly to schools nor to identify which schools received funding under this component of the Programme as reporting requirements focussed on teacher participation levels and outcomes.
