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.
Supporting the teachers of tomorrow, today. Our Future Teacher Scholarships provides $6,000 in financial assistance to ten selected university students studying to become teachers.
Since 2009 we have invested $300,00 in 50 scholarship winners and 30 runners up.
Details about the 2018 Future Teachers Scholarship should be posted on this web page in March, please check back here for details. The applications will be open until early May.
