Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards

The Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards have been created to recognise and reward excellent teaching and school leadership. They have been formed in partnership with Schools Plus, with the Awards being given to teachers and school leaders that are transforming the lives of their students, particularly those in disadvantaged communities.

Each year, the Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards will reward 12 Australian teachers with a Teaching Fellowship, valued at $45,000. Each Fellowship Award comprises $10,000 for professional development, $30,000 for a strategic project at the teacher’s school, and $5,000 for participation in a year-long program that includes a group visit to a high performing education system overseas.
