As it stands, not every child in Australia has access to the education they deserve. By age 15, children from the lowest socioeconomic households are on average almost three years behind in school than children from the highest socioeconomic households.
Teach For Australia seeks to level the playing field for young people across Australia so that all children have access to the education they deserve. We do this by developing and supporting leaders who positively impact students’ academic achievement, access to opportunities, aspirations and attitudes towards learning.
The Leadership Development Program offers a combined postgraduate education and employment opportunity like no other. Associates develop essential leadership skills while gaining context, clarity and conviction as part of a global movement dedicated to achieving equity in education.
Over two years, Associates:
- teach at a school serving a low socioeconomic community, with full salary and benefits;
- earn a Master of Teaching (Secondary)(Professional Practice) through ACU on an assisted scholarship;
- participate in targeted professional development that is tailored to experience and context; and
- receive one-on-one coaching and mentoring to accelerate personal, professional and academic growth.
Through the program, Associates develop the skills and experience to enable them to lead effectively, with the opportunity to make a tangible positive impact on students, schools and communities—every single day.
Teach For Australia provides comprehensive development and support to accelerate personal and professional development. With the help of dedicated coaching and mentoring, Associates often progress into positions of leadership within schools very quickly, enabling a broadened capacity for impact.
After two intense, challenging and unbelievably rewarding years, Associates gain a set of unique and highly sought-after leadership skills.
At the end of the program, Associates may take the next step in a teaching career, striving towards having even more impact on students, school and community, and continuing to master the art and science of being a transformational teacher.
Many Alumni also launch on exciting paths beyond the classroom, taking with them the invaluable skills and experience obtained throughout the program.
