We’re breaking the cycle of educational inequity

As a collective force – of educators, advocates, entrepreneurs, policymakers and community members working together – we strive for the aspirations of students and families. We work together towards equity in education through two key levers that research shows impact student outcomes: teacher quality and leadership.

Why Teach for Australia?

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.

Meet Christiana

″One of the things I’m most proud of is when my students went up from a C-average to a B-average over a six-month period. For me, it was amazing, bringing students to working above standard, and going from saying ‘I don’t like Maths, I can’t do Maths’ to saying that it was their favourite subject and they’d like to pursue it post their secondary education.″

Since 2009

How we’re making a difference

For over a decade, Teach For Australia has offered development programs for teachers, school leaders and mentors who can give the students the knowledge, skills and confidence to pursue their potential.
