Teacher Training Scholarship Fund

The Abiding Heart Teacher Training Diploma Scholarship Fund

Abiding Heart's teacher training courses are offered on a fee-paying basis. We would like to continue to offer scholarships for successful applicants who wish to become fully trained Kindergarten or Primary teachers in our approach, but in need of financial assistance. This includes support to practising teachers who wish to upskill and find new job opportunities and also for committed and enthusiastic candidates who wish to move into a career in high-quality educationOur goal is to help, as much as we possibly can, trainees who are in a real financial difficulty of being able to pay their tuition fees. In the past two years, through the generosity of several donors, we offered financial support in the total sum of $70,000.

Please help us continue this wonderful tradition and invest in teachers, for they are the ones that touch the future through educating the children.
