Celebrating excellence in the relief teacher community

Teachers Mutual Bank and ClassCover have partnered to celebrate and recognise excellence within the hard-working relief teacher community. The launch of this year’s Relief Teacher of the Year Award is the first annual event of its kind and we are excited to be working alongside Teachers Mutual Bank and your local school community to give back to our valued relief teachers.
