Hi there,

We’re delighted to announce that nominations for the 2019 Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards are now open.

Offered through a partnership between the Commonwealth Bank and national charity Schools Plus, the Awards recognise and reward great teachers who are delivering transformative and measurable outcomes for their students.

Teachers who inspire curiosity, engage with their community and encourage their students to believe in themselves. Teachers like previous award recipient Steve Harrison from Huonville High in Tasmania, whose vocational salmon farming program has led to students securing dozens of jobs in the local aquaculture industry.

This year, 12 outstanding teachers and school leaders will be selected to receive a $45,000 Teaching Fellowship. The Fellowships include support for professional development as well as $30,000 for a school project that improves student outcomes. It’s a wonderful opportunity!

So if you know a teacher who’s transforming lives, put them forward for the 2019 Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards.

 
Because great teachers do more than teach.
 
 
 
Nominations close 27 September 2018.
