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 Teachers Scholarship provides $6,000 in financial assistance to selected university students studying to become teachers. Since 2009 we have provided $372,000 to 70 scholarship winners and 50 runners up.
Supporting principals' professional development
Teachers Mutual Bank Principals Scholarship enables one Principal from a government primary or secondary school in Australia the opportunity to undertake a professional education leadership program at Harvard Graduate School of Education in the USA. The scholarships provide a successful applicant with the opportunity to ‘reflect, refocus and recharge’ through a professional education program tailor-made for school principals.
In conjunction with the Public Education Foundation, Teachers Mutual Bank Emerging Leaders Scholarship provides a professional development opportunity for emerging education leaders to undertake a short professional leadership program at Harvard Kennedy School in the USA. The Scholarship provides a successful applicant with the opportunity to explore modes of collaborative working and to identify opportunities for innovative leadership.
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.
Premier’s Teachers Mutual Bank Indigenous Education Scholarship aims to support staff who currently teach indigenous education to indigenous and non-indigenous students. Increasing knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal histories and culture is a key strategy of the NSW Department of Education. All teachers currently teaching aspects of indigenous education across the curriculum in NSW Schools and TAFE NSW Campuses/Colleges are eligible to apply.
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. Thirteen applications were received in total which included seven from government schools, two from TAFE NSW Institutes and three from non-government schools.
The recipient awarded the Premier’s Teachers Mutual Bank New and Emerging Technologies Scholarship is Michael Turner, Mitchell High School. Michael’s project is the Augmented and Virtual Reality—do they have a place in mainstream Australian schools?
The focus of his study will be to investigate the benefits of implementing augmented and virtual reality (A/VR) in schools and how to maximise student learning and engagement while using A/VR. Michael’s tour will take place in several augmented and virtual reality hubs in the US.
