ASG’s National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA) Foundation was established in 1994 to honour exemplary teaching throughout Australia and New Zealand.
For more than 20 years, these awards have provided communities with the opportunity to formally recognise and thank outstanding teachers and leaders.
ASG is proud to continue its support for the teaching profession by acknowledging the valuable role inspirational teachers play in the development of our young people.
Since its inception, ASG NEiTA has received more than 30,000 nominations from early childhood and school communities throughout Australia. More than 1000 teachers have received awards, and more than $125,000 has been awarded in professional development grants and prizes.
Nominations for 2015 have now closed.
2016 nominations will open in April.
