Speld Qld was founded in 1969 by Patricia Savage, an inspirational lady who wanted to ensure her child received the very best from education. Since its inception Speld Qld has grown and developed ensuring the needs of its members are met.
In October 2014, Speld rebadged and refocussed its attention, with a special promise to serve the members of Queensland, and ensure our services and professional development are offered through modern technology and are accessible for those in regional, rural and isolated areas of the State.
Speld Qld is a not for profit organisation receiving a small grant from Education Queensland to staff our 2 Educational Advisors and Executive Officer. They are supported by an Office Manager an Accountant and an Admin Assistant. We also co-ordinate 75 Specialist Teachers, and 8 Assessors who provide a service on behalf of Speld Qld.
