PTANT Awards 2022

Professional teaching associations are formed by passionate educators who volunteer time to share expertise in curriculum, pedagogy and theory across all subjects and stages of schooling. Since 2009, the biennial PTANT Awards have acknowledged and celebrated the dedication and hard work of these educators in advocating for and promoting professional collegiality, engagement, knowledge and practice in their profession.

The PTANT Awards Evening was held on 2 November 2022 at the Double Tree by Hilton on the Esplanade and was opened by the Hon Eva Lawler, Minister for Education. It was a wonderful evening recognising the dedication of association members.
