Subsidies for AMSP professional development courses
Through government funding, the AMSP is able to offer many events for free or at low cost. For some of our professional development courses, additional subsidies are available to enable more teachers to participate, particularly teachers in AMSP Priority Areas.
These subsidies, usually paid on completion of the course, cover the full course fees. They may also include a contribution towards the costs of teacher cover, travel expenses, and the support provided by your school/college.
The table below summarises the subsidies available for 2018-19 courses.
