“We are thrilled to be finalists in these awards again in 2020”, she said. “To be shortlisted in four categories is a fantastic achievement”.

For the Best Professional Learning Program Award, Genazzano has been nominated for its Science of Learning: Improving Educational Outcomes professional learning program. Now in its third year, the multi-year program is designed and delivered by internationally renowned neuroscientist, teacher and author, Dr Jared Cooney Horvath.
