We're committed to supporting the professional development of teachers and principals. You could complete a qualification, take time off each week to study while teaching, move to another curriculum or subject area, or take time off to research a topic of interest.
You can apply for any Award of interest once it's open. Prior to opening, you can sign up for an email reminder and we’ll let you know when the application information about that Award is available for download.
