Teacher Fellowship Program 2022

Teachers learning with and from the best.

Teachers have highly complex roles and care deeply for students in their charge. They continuously learn, apply, analyse, synthesise and evaluate while administering, directing, responding, creating and communicating with insight and humour.

ISV’s Teacher Fellowship Program aims to recognise the best of these teachers and create a community of practitioners across schools to learn with and from the best.

This program is aimed at high performing educators who are currently in a leadership role, or aspiring towards leadership.
