We recognise the contribution the teachers of NSW have provided through their selfless dedication to their craft
Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
apprenticepower is pleased to announce itself as the principal sponsor of this year’s Sydney’s Favourite Teacher Campaign. The campaign, run by radio station 2UE, has been designed to help us celebrate those who work tirelessly in and out of the classroom to ensure that children receive all the benefits education can bring.
apprenticepower Managing Director, Ian Tucker, explains their motivation behind the sponsorship:
“apprenticepower has been involved in building the skills wealth of the youth in NSW for over 30 years through apprenticeships and traineeships. In doing so we have come to realise that in building anything that lasts, you have to have a strong foundation. We recognise the contribution the teachers of NSW have provided through their selfless dedication to their craft, to build this foundation.”
From 27th August, Sydney-siders are invited to nominate their favourite teacher from which ten finalists will be shortlisted. The winning teacher will receive a $10,000 cash prize and an official plaque in recognition of their reward. An additional cash prize of $4,000 will be awarded to the school the winning teacher comes from. Nominators also have the chance to win $1,000 in cash, as one lucky winner will be drawn at random from the pool of nominators of the winning teacher.
The campaign coincides with National Skills Week, which runs from 27th August to 2nd September 2012, and raises the status of practical and vocational learning, enabling all Australians to gain a greater understanding of the opportunities, their potential, and how they can contribute to a successful modern economy.
“This week, during National Skills Week, it’s as important as ever to recognise the teaching community’s commitment to foundation skills development in our youth,” said Tucker.
Nominations for the 2012 Sydney’s Favourite Teacher Campaign are open from 27th August and can be made via the 2UE website (http://www.2ue.com.au).
