Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) is committed to providing a culturally inclusive workplace for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. To enhance the attraction, employment and retention of education graduates within the organisation, BCE is offering scholarships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students interested in a teaching career. These scholarships are available to students who are
current Year 12 students in a BCE college, or
current university students who are enrolled in a full-time education degree at a University campus located within the Brisbane Archdiocese.
We also offer our current Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Year 12 students the opportunity to participate in the
Future Teacher Mentoring Program, a pathway program for the above scholarships. The benefits of this program include part-time or casual employment in a School Officer role in a BCE school or college, and an ongoing mentoring relationship.
Current BCE employees have the opportunity to apply for the Vince O’Rourke Scholarship, which supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees who are undertaking study relevant to their work at BCE, or studying towards a teaching degree.
Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) offers scholarships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are current Year 12 students (2019) in a BCE college and are interested in a career in primary or secondary teaching.
