Few other careers offer the opportunity for genuine responsibility, autonomy and impact from day one.

Through Teach For Australia's Leadership Development 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 is an innovative non-profit organisation and part of a global movement dedicated to improving equity in education. Our vision to achieve educational equity begins inside the classroom, but Associates don't start out as teachers – they come from all academic disciplines and a variety of backgrounds. We look for well-rounded and passionate individuals, who have the qualities to create change.

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) 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.

Teach For Australia provides comprehensive training and support to accelerate personal and professional development throughout the program. Associates often progress into positions of leadership within schools very quickly, enabling a broadened capacity for impact.

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 through the Leadership Development Program.

Whether you choose to continue teaching, or aspire to a career in business, policy, innovation or elsewhere, Teach For Australia will continue to inspire, connect and empower you to lead change.

Challenge yourself to make a difference. Your time starts now.

You are an adviser, a counsellor, a cheerleader, a boundary-setter, and on any given day you can be both the best and worst person in the world (if your students had any say, that is!).
