Teaching Awards 2018


Teaching Awards 2018

We all know great teachers do more than teach – they inspire curiosity, encourage creativity, help children reach their full potential and so much more.

The Commonwealth Bank and Schools Plus are proud to present the 2019 Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards. Now in its third year, the Awards aim to showcase Australia’s great teachers, celebrate their achievements and show appreciation for the important work they do.

Why should I apply?

If you are one of our 12 Award recipients, you’ll receive a 12-month Fellowship that includes $10,000 for professional development and an overseas education visit valued at $5,000.

Plus, you will receive $30,000 to fund a high-impact project at your school.

Who can apply?

The Awards are open to all registered teachers and school leaders currently working in any Australian school. Applications for teaching achievements in socially diverse communities are especially encouraged.

Why should I nominate someone?

Great teachers and school leaders deserve recognition. Nominating someone is a great way to show your appreciation for their teaching achievements, but doesn’t oblige them to apply.​
