Do you know a public school teacher, leader or school support staff member who is making a difference in the lives of students? Nominations for the 2021 WA Education Awards are now open. Edith Cowan University is delighted to sponsor the Beginning Teacher of the Year category, as well as the WA Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer of the Year.
ECU’s School of Education has been at the forefront of teacher education for over a century and has a strong reputation for the quality of its graduates. We are committed to education and strive to ensure our students become teachers through quality programs, informed research practice and outstanding community-based partnerships with schools. The Beginning Teacher of the Year category recognises the fresh, enthusiastic and passionate approach that beginning teachers bring to their classrooms and to the profession.
Kurongkurl Katitjin, ECU’s Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research believes in the transformative impact of education in changing the lives of not only the individual, but also the lives of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities across generations. The WA Aboriginal Islander Education Officer of the Year category recognises the significant role of Aboriginal and Islander Education Officers in supporting school staff to develop culturally inclusive teaching and learning programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
