Scholarship programs

Scholarships can help provide financial support to help take your early learning career to the next level.

At the heart of the ECEC sector is the skilled and dedicated teachers and educators that make all the difference for children, families, and communities.

The NSW Department of Education is committed to developing a highly qualified and sustainable ECEC workforce. The NSW Government has committed $9 million as part of its $22 million election commitment in the ECEC workforce to offer scholarships for ECEC professionals to upskill with a diploma or degree.

Whether you’re just starting out in the sector or have been a part of it for years, we aim to support you on every step of your career journey.

This page is a home for new scholarship announcements, as well as information and guidelines for past scholarships program guidelines.
