Scholarships for Tasmanian teachers to attend

Cutting Edge: margin to mainstream

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Tasmanian Department of Education, 16 scholarships are being offered to support teachers from Tasmanian Department of Education schools and colleges, to attend the AATE/ALEA National Conference in Hobart in July 2017. The scholarship is intended to support schools to enable more than one teacher to attend the conference. The $625 scholarship will cover the full Early Bird registration cost for one teacher to attend the 2017 national English and literacy educators’ conference in Hobart between 6th and 9th of July.
