Bell Shakespeare’s Regional Teacher Mentorship

Thanks to the Australian Government and Teachers Mutual Bank, the Regional Teacher Mentorship offers 30 teachers from regional and remote Australian schools a fully funded, year-long mentorship with Bell Shakespeare.
Teachers will receive four days of intensive, collaborative, and tailored training at Bell Shakespeare HQ in Sydney. They will design new curriculum content, network, learn, and see Antony and Cleopatra at Sydney Opera House. When they return to their schools they will receive in-school programmes, mentoring and ongoing feedback from Bell Shakespeare staff and artists.
A truly powerful programme designed to build capacity in our incredible regional teachers. Whether you are a recent graduate in need of help or a veteran in need of inspiration, the Regional Teacher Mentorship is for you.
Travel, accommodation and Professional Learning expenses costs are provided.
