2019 Grant Activity

The PTANT provided four types of grants to Member Associations:

Professional Learning Grant to assist Member Associations seeking to upskill NT teachers in areas relevant to their association. This grant enables teachers to build skills, knowledge and pedagogical practices in a range of disciplines, which provide NT teachers with evidence based programs, practices and teaching styles to improve student outcomes.

Governance Grant to assist Member Associations to maintain compliance with the Associations Act 2003 (NT) and regulations. This grant can be used only for activities that align with the requirements imposed under the Act, e.g. obtaining assistance or up-skilling members in relation to the legislation and/or compliance.

National/International Conference Grant to assist Member Associations to co-convene or host, in collaboration with their national representative body, a national or international conference in the NT that showcases educational excellence, and enables NT teachers to access high quality professional learning. Member Associations have two years to acquit national conference grants.

Start-up Grant to assist newly-formed associations to establish their association, including website development, Territory Business Centre lodgement, bank account establishment, host membership drives/community events, and training.

This year, a total of 24 grants provided access to 58 professional learning opportunities across the NT, benefiting 819 teachers and 237 non-teachers. Grants were paid in accordance with PTANT grant guidelines. (Please note, individual teachers may have attended more than one professional learning event.)
