 Your school/college is eligible for the additional subsidy for professional development courses if all of the following apply:

  • you are working at a school or college located within a TSMA
  • the course fee, where applicable, has been paid by the school or college
  • you fully and actively participate in the course

Courses may have additional payment criteria. Please check the subsidy details on the course webpage before making an application for a place.

During the application process, you will be asked to provide financial details for your school/college. These will be used to pay the subsidy.

For most courses, we accept applications from teachers who do not work in the state sector; however, course fees may apply. Information about eligibility and fees are provided within course details. In all cases, teachers from state-funded schools and colleges are given priority when allocating places on oversubscribed courses. For further details, please see our statement on funding and eligibility for AMSP professional development courses.
