In Australia, the postcode that you’re born in can radically impact your whole future – determining the type of education you can access. Too many young people are left behind: set up for lives of disadvantage instead of lives of opportunity. It’s not their choice; and it isn’t their fault.
Together, we can do something about it.
We believe in equity in education – an Australia where your postcode does not determine your future potential, the opportunities available to you in life, or your ability to contribute to society.
We see the strengths of the communities we work with – they demonstrate leadership and resilience each and every day.
Our goal is to learn from those already within these communities, and to work with and support them to better and more equitable outcomes.
Teaching is leadership. A great teacher can have a huge impact in the classroom, within schools and in broader communities.

An effective teacher will exemplify these every day working with their students, inspiring them to achieve their full potential.
Quality teaching and school leadership are proven to have the most significant impact on the educational outcomes of children — but to truly realise our vision, we need leaders across all areas of society to work together to effect change, help break the cycle of educational disadvantage and empower all students with a quality education.
We seek to lead by example and are agents for change in ourselves, in students and in our society. We create empowering learning environments that enable others to excel.
Humility and learning:
