The Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards are prestigious national awards established to recognise and reward outstanding teaching and school leadership across Australia. The Awards were launched in 2016 through a partnership between the Commonwealth Bank and Schools Plus, founded on our strong commitment to advancing education in Australia.
In March 2020, 12 exceptional teachers and school leaders were announced as recipients of the fourth annual Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards – our 2020 Teaching Fellows.
Recipients take part in a 12-month Fellowship which includes professional development, opportunities to develop and influence teaching practice, and funding for a major project at the Fellow’s school. This unique Fellowship program is designed to celebrate the important work teachers do, and build a national community of education change-makers who will inspire and influence practice in classrooms across the country.
Applications for the 2021 Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards will open later this year. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
Schools Plus and the Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards are proud to partner with the Varkey Foundation which presents the Global Teacher Prize.
