Investing in the teacher community
We invest in putting teachers at the heart of everything we do. We create opportunities for teachers and the education community to flourish.
You put your heart and soul into teaching, and we put teachers at the heart of everything we do.
It’s why we help with scholarships, grants and programs that help you and your communities build brighter futures. We believe in creating opportunities for teachers and the education community to flourish. We are passionate about education.
“As a purpose-driven bank, putting profits back into the community is extremely important to us. We’re proud to be leading the way not just in Australia but globally. If all banks spent 4% of their profit in the community, the impact would be billions.”
We collaborate with a wide range of education community partners and provide financial support through sponsorships, partnerships, grants, scholarships, donations and charities including the NSW Premier’s Teachers Scholarship (for new and emerging technologies) and Harvard Club of Australia Scholarship in partnership with the Public Education Foundation.
Professional development is a major focus of our investment. We support conferences and events which are an integral part of extending and improving school curriculums by assisting in improving skills and training for principals, deputy principals, teachers and school administration and support employees.
We work in partnership with the State Education bodies; the Department of Education NSW, Department of Education (WA) and the ACT Department of Education on a range of events, programs and sponsorships, and professional development.
Our Future Teachers Scholarships offer $5,000 in financial assistance to selected university students studying to become teachers. This year we will provide eight Australian university students with $5,000 each in financial assistance in addition to awarding 10 runners up with $250 each.
The $5,000 is given to recipients in two instalments — at the beginning of the first and second semesters.
As part of their application Future Teachers Scholarship recipients must also submit an essay answering ‘what is your vision for the future of teaching?’
Are you a public school principal? The Harvard Club of Australia Teachers Mutual Bank Scholarship provides the opportunity to progress your leadership skills at one of the world’s greatest centres of learning, the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Applications for this prestigious scholarship are now open and will close 27 February 2017.
New and emerging technologies are an integral part of twenty-first century learning. All primary and secondary teachers currently teaching in NSW schools, as well as, teachers from TAFE NSW Institutes are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
At Teachers Mutual Bank we encourage all teachers who want to investigate new and emerging technologies trends in teaching and visit some of the world’s best schools and centres for learning to apply for this scholarship. We believe in giving teachers the best opportunities to further development their skills and professional learning.
TMB sponsor the Premier’s Teachers Mutual Bank New and Emerging Technologies Scholarship. This scholarship is for a teacher to investigate trends in teaching new and emerging technologies, as well as, visit some of the world’s best schools and centres in new and emerging technologies. Thirty four applications were received in total which included twenty four from government schools, four from TAFE NSW Institutes and six from non-government schools. There were fourteen applications from regional schools.
The wining recipient of the Premier’s Teachers Mutual Bank New and Emerging Technologies Scholarship is Kerry Wallace-Massone, Heathcote High School (Metropolitan). Kerry’s project is the New Horizons for Unmanned Technology.
The focus of her study is to use student’s fascination with UAV (commonly known as drones) technology to prepare students for jobs that don’t exist today. UAVs represent an intersection of innovative technology with enormous career potential. She particularly wants to encourage girls into the technology and increase their representation in the STEM/STEAM field.
