NSW Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli announced the 21 teachers who have won a Premier’s Teacher Scholarship.
Mr Piccoli said the winning teachers were recommended by their peers, education specialists, industry professionals or their principals and are from across NSW.
“This program gives gifted teachers the opportunity to increase their depth of knowledge and further develop their teaching,” Mr Piccoli said.
“Teachers benefit by learning cutting-edge education practices, acquiring new teaching methods and skills, and expanding their professional networks."
The winning teachers have chosen to study STEM education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), language learning environments in Singapore, Japan and China, and research programs to increase the number of girls studying economics, business and commerce in the USA and UK.
More than 420 teachers across NSW have received the Premier's Teacher Scholarships since 1999.
All NSW teachers in both government and non-government schools and TAFE are eligible to apply for the scholarships.
