Shine the Spotlight on Inspirational Teachers

Nominations are now open for the NEiTA 2010 ASG Inspirational Teaching Awards. This year the NEiTA program recognises the range of leadership qualities that inspirational teachers bring both to their roles and the teaching profession with the theme Great Teachers Lead The Way.

NEiTA’s chairman, Terry O’Connell says leadership qualities are vitally important in the makeup of an inspiring and excellent teacher. “But Australia’s educators, who demonstrate their leadership skills every day, often go unrecognised. NEiTA aims to help remedy this and shine the limelight on the host of leadership qualities that inspirational teachers possess.

Australian parents, school councils, committees of management, parent associations, secondary student councils, and community organisations may nominate teachers.

Nominees may be early childhood and school teachers from the spectrum of education settings.

Nominations close 30 July 2010. Nominations may be completed online or download a nomination form from the NEiTA website or contact NEiTA on 1800 624 487 or
