Professional development

When you teach, you also learn. We're committed to supporting the professional development of teachers and principals. Our study awards, sabbaticals and grants  can help you complete a qualification, take time to study while teaching, research a topic of interest, or move to another curriculum or subject area.

The Advanced Classroom Expertise Teacher (ACET) allowance recognises a classroom teacher whose practice is demonstrably higher than the experienced teacher professional standards.

There are a lot more awards you can apply for too. Check them out in this section.
