Teacher Study Awards

2019 Teacher Study Awards

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.

The 2019 Teacher Study Awards are opening soon and 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.

You can view the full Awards Table here.
