Teacher Intern Placement Program (TIPP) scholarships are awarded to UTAS students, in their final year of teacher education, who demonstrate academic, personal and professional aptitude for quality teaching.

Beginning your teaching career on a TIPP scholarship is a unique opportunity to complete your final year of study whilst developing your practical teaching skills. Interns are placed in a school and work alongside Practice-focused Mentors (experienced teachers) who support them to develop their practical teaching skills. Interns are provided with adequate time for study in addition to their time in a classroom and other teaching related activities, this will give interns the opportunity to fully develop their classroom practice, so they enter the profession highly skilled and classroom ready.

Being awarded a scholarship is an exciting achievement that recognises a student’s professional potential. The scholarship provides dedicated support whilst developing quality teaching practices, and a permanent teaching position in 2021 upon graduation and successful completion of the internship in 2020. Scholarships offered will predominantly be in regional schools.

The TIPP covers 35 hours per week on the school site. Between 14 to 21 hours per week is dedicated study time and the remaining time is spent in the classroom or on other teacher related activities. At the end of the year interns will have gained a working knowledge of school operations, practical classroom experience, and established meaningful professional relationships.

The TIPP scholarship recipients are provided with both financial and practical supports.

  • A $15,000 financial scholarship
  • Placement in a Tasmanian Government school (35 hours per week) during final year of study, working alongside experienced teachers
  • Access to mentor and colleague teachers for professional development to support professional learning and training
  • Use of a teacher device (laptop computer), internet and access to the Department’s software and network
  • Accommodation and/or travel expense support where applicable
