Scholarships for Early Learning Educators

More than 400 aspiring early childhood teachers across NSW are set to receive a cash boost to complete their higher education studies.

Member for Castle Hill Ray Williams MP said almost $11 million has been invested from the NSW 2022/23 Budget to deliver scholarships to support educators in entering the workforce or to boost their skills as degree-qualified early childhood teachers.

“Every successful applicant will be awarded up to $25,000 and I am so pleased that 14 early learning professionals in Castle Hill will benefit from it.” Mr Williams said.

Sarah Mitchell MLC, NSW Minister for Education and Early Childhood said one third of all successful scholars live and work in regional and remote areas across the state, which will help create lasting benefits now and into the future for all NSW children, families and the economy.

“These scholarships will support recipients to deepen their understanding of early childhood environments and gain additional skills and capabilities which will be passed on to the children they teach.

“I congratulate the scholars on their commitment to education and I wish them every success in their studies and future careers as qualified early childhood teachers.”

The scholarships will help create a viable supply of early learning professionals under the 2022-23 Early Childhood Education Scholarship Program and Aboriginal Early Childhood Education Scholarship program.
