There are exciting career opportunities for officers who seek promotion within the Queensland Police Service (QPS). 


Numerous education and training avenues exist for professional development, which are often formally accredited and directly assist with promotional prospects.

Two significant education and training programs, the Constable Development Program and the Management Development Program, are recognised as being undergraduate and post-graduate level studies by various institutions. These programs count as credit towards recognised tertiary qualifications. Relevant prior studies and qualifications may be acknowledged under a policy of recognition of prior learning. 

Police officers who have completed the necessary studies to be eligible for promotion can apply and compete on merit for promotion.
