For the month of September we're putting student well-being front and centre. Through a range of initiatives and resources, our focus is to assist in building efficacy and resilience in your students in one of the toughest years of their schooling.

Do you dream of becoming a writer?

Education Perfect (EP) and TBS Next Gen are pleased to announce their Student Voices writing competition to be launched on 18th of August 2020.

The competition is open to all students!

There is a lot of discussion around education and the future of education in the media right now but a key voice isn’t being heard - yours. We want to hear the thoughts and experiences of those directly impacted by the conversation.


The best five submissions will be published on TBS Next Gen where your voice will be heard by many! The published five submissions all receive a EP gift pack including tote bag, T-shirt, keep cup and chocolates.

Students can then vote on their favourite article for the chance at a 6 month mentorship.

The author of the winning article will be offered a monthly feature over a period of 6 months on TBS Next Gen with mentorship from TBS staff writers.
