Catholic Education Cairns has partnered with Australian Catholic University, James Cook University and Central Queensland University to offer scholarships to final year Education students as part of our commitment to attract, develop and retain graduate teachers at our schools in the region.
The scholarships provide both financial and practical assistance to final year Education students, including support with airfares, accommodation assistance and living expenses while scholarship recipients are in far northern Catholic schools for the duration of their practicum. A car is also provided if required for travel to school. Students receive $1,000 in their fourth year, potential placement in a Catholic school, and Professional Development sessions throughout the year as part of our ‘Getting Ready for Employment’ program.
