Country Education Partnership established the Rural Education Awards to showcase the outstanding achievements and practices of education leaders, and educators, in Victorian Rural and Remote Learning Communities across all education sectors.
The award has operated for a number of years recognising outstanding rural education leadership with kind support from people such as Mr Baillieu Myer AO.
The 2021 Rural Education Award will acknowledge the inspirational and innovative Educators, Education Leaders and Education Organisations who work collaboratively to provide learning within our rural and remote communities.
Country Education Partnership invites rural learning communities (whether that be early years services, schools, or adult learning organisations) to nominate educators, education leaders, education teams, or clusters who have taken creative and innovative approaches to making a difference.
