Work at Home Software for Education Queensland Teachers and Students

Under the Work at Home agreement with the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE), software from leading IT vendors (Microsoft and Adobe) are available to DETE staff at a reduced rate. To order, you will need to go to the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) OnePortal, and use your DETE credentials to log into this site. If you do not know your DETE credentials, please contact the DETE helpdesk on 1300 729 070.

Staff can order the Microsoft Office and Windows 8 upgrade however, this will be specific to your organisation’s agreement with Microsoft. More information on your specific entitlements is available on the DETE OnePortal.


In June 2014, Microsoft removed Microsoft Office and Windows media from sale to Academic Institutions thus resulting in students being unable to purchase Microsoft media products for Work at Home purposes. There will be another option released in the first half of 2015 to EQ students however, there is no solution available in the interim.
