About the Awards

 Great teachers help children reach their full potential. The Commonwealth Bank and Schools Plus are presenting new Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards to help 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 observation visit valued at $5,000. Plus, your school will receive $30,000 to fund a high-impact project.

Who can apply?

The Awards are open to all registered teachers and school leaders currently working in any Australian school. In this inaugural year, applications for teaching achievements in challenging and 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.

Applications open at 9am on Wednesday 19 October 2016 (AEDT). 
Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday 30 November 2016 (AEDT).
