School teachers in line for $25,000 research Fellowship


School teachers are invited to apply for a $25,000 research Fellowship to study current issues in Catholic education here and overseas.

The Brother John Taylor Fellowship is awarded annually by Catholic Education Commission NSW (CECNSW) to a NSW educator who demonstrates the capacity to make a valuable contri-bution to Catholic school education.

"The Fellowship provides $25,000 to enable the Fellow - supported by a Mentor - to travel and undertake a research project that addresses current priorities or challenges in Catholic education," CECNSW Executive Director Brian Croke said.

"The research may be conducted in Australia and overseas, and can examine any one of a range of issues related to Catholic schooling.

"The Fellowship promotes teacher quality and highlights the teaching profession, particularly in the Catholic context."

Dr Croke said the award honours John Taylor, a Christian Brother, and his lifelong dedication to education and the ideals of equity and access.

"John made his mark on NSW education over three decades as a teacher, principal and Executive Director of CECNSW," Dr Croke said.

"He was also a valued member of government education boards and was highly regarded for commitment, strong principles and integrity."

Applications must be submitted by Monday 29 September 2014 using the form on the CECNSW website: www.cecnsw.catholic.edu.au
