About the Teaching Awards

Each year, national education non-profit Schools Plus, in partnership with Commonwealth Bank, celebrates 22 inspirational teachers who are making a transformative and measurable impact on children and communities around Australia.

Twelve outstanding teachers will receive a prestigious $40,000 award including funding for a strategic school project and participation in a unique 12-month Teaching Fellowship program.

Ten early career teachers with the passion and potential to make an increasing impact in education will receive $10,000 for professional development and an exclusive professional learning program.
