Regional Teacher Mentorship

Fully-funded, year-long support for regional teachers

Supported by the Australian Government and Teachers Mutual Bank

We are excited to announce the recipients of the 2022 Regional Teacher Mentorship, supported by the Australian Government and Teachers Mutual Bank.

Thank you to all teachers who applied from right across Australia, who shared with us their unique challenges and ambitions. We are, as always, in awe of the work you do.

The following teachers will be joining us for specialist training at Bell Shakespeare HQ, Pier 2/3 Walsh Bay, in June 2022. On return to their school they will receive support and mentoring from the Company for one year. Congratulations from all of us at Bell Shakespeare – we can't wait to work with you.
