Award Nomination

Professional Learning Scholarship 2020

ACHPER NSW aims to support PDHPE teachers across NSW through the provision of quality teaching and learning workshops. ACHPER NSW seeks to recognise the barriers that limit access for teachers to attend such workshops and so the development of a professional learning scholarship seeks to provide teacher with access to professional learning. With this in mind, ACHPER NSW invites members to apply for a professional learning scholarship of $1000 which can be used in the following ways:

    • 1 X ACHPER NSW Workshop in the 2020 calendar + relief for 1 day + travel/accommodation


    • 2 x ACHPER NSW workshops in the 2020 calendar + travel/accommodation


    • Registration at the 2020 Stage 6 Conference + relief for one day
