USQ LANTITE preparation and support resources can be found on MyIT.
The LANTITE tests are administered by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). You are required to register directly with ACER. Test results will be released to USQ and uploaded against your student profile.
ACER facilitate only four Test sittings a year, we suggest you plan and allow 12 months for the successful completion of LANTITE.
Results are released from ACER after each test window and uploaded against your student profile. Students who have not achieved standard are provided support as outlined under LANTITE support.
All students can access web based LANTITE support and resources on the MyIT site.
Student’s identified as not achieved standard after their 2nd and 3rd attempt will be assigned LANTITE liaison support. Please see the below LANTITE support triangle for further information.
Each jurisdiction (State or Territory) has sought to comply with the national requirements in slightly different ways. In some States and Territories, ITE students are required to complete LANTITE to register as a teacher, while in other States and Territories, Universities are asked to ensure that the LANTITE is passed before graduation, prior to registering as a teacher. It is recommended if seeking teacher registration outside of Queensland, ITE students check with their State or Territory registering body to confirm their requirements.
