NGS Super Scholarship Awards 2014

Supporting the sector that supports us

At NGS Super, we’re committed to supporting those who are dedicated to making a positive difference in the world. The NGS Super Scholarship Awards program provides up to six $5,000 scholarships to our members working in the education sector. The awards consist of three categories within the education sector – teachers, management and support staff. The Awards provide the opportunity for professional development on a personal level as well as facilitating a positive and sustainable change within the education industry.

The Scholarship Awards allows applicants to design and develop their own unique professional development project, course or study tour with the primary objective to significantly contribute to their employer and the broader education industry. The 2014 Scholarship Awards saw a wide range of unique and creative projects from applicants. Our winners displayed a strong desire to contribute to and improve the education industry with potential to add significant value to the sector.

For example, one of our 2014 winners, Charlotte Forwood is passionate about empowering students with language disorders and wants to build teacher knowledge and understanding within this space. She is using her scholarship award to visit schools and organisations in the UK offering services and support for students with language disorders and their teachers, with an aim to implement similar strategies in Australia.

Another winner, Emily Gann is using her Scholarship Award to fund her study tour which will investigate best-practice models of education partnerships between schools and professional music organisations. She plans on developing a Learning Program that provides accessible music education opportunities to complement and enhance music programs within schools, with a specific focus on enabling students to actively participate and engage with professional musicians.

Another winner, Luis Siddall is using his Scholarship Award to fund the program he is leading called the Cuneiform in Australia and New Zealand project (CANZ). This aims to identify, translate and publish all the cuneiform tablets in the region and produce a book with a catalogue and editions of each text and an educational web-site and support syllabus that teachers can use for secondary history. These texts are important for the field of ancient history for they have never been translated and need to be analysed and published to bring them to light
