What's new in 2021?

This year we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the VEEA. The VEEA is an opportunity to celebrate the real and unique differences teachers, principals and education support staff make to the lives of students and their communities, and to support the continued professional development of teachers, principals and education support staff through awarding winners with professional learning grants.

In 2021 two new award categories have been introduced to recognise excellent teachers in the first five years of their teaching career: Outstanding Early Career Primary Teacher and Outstanding Early Career Secondary Teacher. Winning teachers will each be awarded a professional learning grant of $20,000.
