Alert me - NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarships

Michael Turner, Transition Advisor at Mitchell High School, was awarded the Premier's Teachers Mutual Bank New and Emerging Technologies Scholarship.

His quest to find the answer to the question, ‘Is Virtual Reality the possible educational "game changer" that people are saying?’ led him to the USA to experience the experience of others and bring them back for other teachers to use in their classrooms with their students.

With a NSW Premier's Teacher Scholarship, you could spend five weeks in Australia or overseas, exploring your field of teaching expertise. Applications for scholarship-funded study tours in 2020 will open in early 2019. Subscribe to our Alert Me list to be notified when scholarships applications open!

“Being in one of the largest tech hubs in the world and speaking to builders and users of the VR in education space has been invaluable to my learning on the topic of VR and its use in education. I guess, you could say, I struck gold. Virtually, of course.”

ClassCover works for casual teachers

Teachers seeking casual employment with NSW Department of Education public schools will find the new ClassCover application an essential ingredient in getting work.

Earlier in the year, the department announced ClassCover as the preferred platform for booking casual teachers. The result has been outstanding. As of term 4, 2018 there are more than 1,250 NSW public schools registered with the service – almost twice as many as this time last year.

Go to ClassCover and create your profile for free! You will be prompted to add your details such as your qualifications, experience and subject and location preferences.

You can reduce the time needed when accepting casual work by uploading files, such as your approval to teach letter, Working with Children Check confirmation, and anaphylaxis and e-emergency certificates. Schools will still need to confirm these before you can start work, but having them on your profile means they’re always available.

Then, you’ll be ready to download the app on your phone and begin managing your availability and bookings!
