2017 Premiers Teacher Scholarships

The scholarships provide teachers with $10,000-$15,000 for a five-week study tour, visiting some of the world's most highly-acclaimed schools and centres for teaching and learning.

During the tour, teachers will have the opportunity to explore their field of expertise and investigate subjects such as harnessing digital technologies in classrooms, exploring augmented and virtual reality for education purposes and preventing and supporting youth with depression.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the scholarships were a wonderful chance for exemplary educators to get the opportunity to further pursue their fields of knowledge.

“This is an amazing opportunity that can really transform a teacher’s professional career by broadening their knowledge and expanding their horizons,” Mr Stokes said.

“It’s all about enriching the learning experiences of our students by providing our best teachers the opportunity to become world experts in education.”

Since 1999 more than 400 teachers have received Premier’s Teacher Scholarships.
