The Catholic Schools Office (CSO) Diocese of Armidale will be offering a number of scholarships to applicants who intend to commence or are in the process of completing a recognised initial teacher education training program in 2020. The CSO is committed to encouraging participation in the teacher education program and providing employment opportunities in its schools for successful graduates.

The scholarship will consist of a $7,500 training allowance per academic year of full-time study (full-time study will be dependant on specific university definition) and a $3,000 one-off grant on appointment to a Diocese school (appointment location will be determined by the CSO). The successful applicant will be required to complete twelve (12) school terms of continuous service with the Diocese as a permanent, full-time teacher after satisfactory completion of the program. 

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of previous academic performance and professional experience (practicum) assessments, personal and professional suitability. The offer of a scholarship is dependent on the applicant being deemed personally suitable for teaching in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Armidale, satisfying a Working with Children Check and being an Australian citizen or having permanent residency status.
