MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging anyone passionate about teaching to apply for the 2016 teacher education scholarships, internships and cadetships.
Mr Marshall said the teacher education scholarships were an important way of securing the best teachers to inspire and develop future generations.
“Since 2011 more than 1,466 scholarships have been awarded to outstanding candidates which indicates the commitment of the government to ensuring the best and brightest candidates train to become teachers,” he said.
“Through Great Teaching, Inspired Learning and the Rural & Remote Education Blueprint we have delivered reforms that will boost the quality of future educators.”
- 300 Teacher Education Scholarships available to HSC students, university students and career-change applicants training in areas of need;
- 50 teach.Rural scholarships for HSC students to train in teaching areas needed for rural and remote schools;
- 25 cadetships for HSC students enrolling in teacher education studies who will work part-time in a NSW public school while studying; and
- 25 internships for teacher education students entering their final year of study.
“All scholars, cadets and interns are guaranteed a permanent teaching position in a NSW public school when they successfully complete their studies,” Mr Marshall said.
