Educator Award Submissions

Kate Mullin Educator Award 2021

Submissions for the 2021 Kate Mullin Educator Award are now open. The Award aims to recognise and celebrate educators who demonstrate excellence in the teaching of English to Aboriginal students, whose first language may be Aboriginal English, an Aboriginal Language or a creole such as the Kimberley Kriol.  The educator can self-nominate or be nominated by a line-manager, colleague, student or community member.

The total Award is $3,000, and it will be presented at the WATESOL AGM in December 2021.  We invite applications from teachers (Aboriginal or non-Aboriginal) and other Aboriginal Educators to apply.  The award can be presented to colleagues who make a joint application, or to separate applicants. Submissions from teachers and Aboriginal education workers/support officers will be judged on the criteria of their respective roles in the classroom.
