In Australia, the postcode that you’re born in can radically impact your whole future.

Challenge yourself to make a difference.

At university, Amy knew that she wanted to inspire real change. Teach For Australia’s mission that resonated with her: “Growing up in a small rural town in north-west Victoria, it was only in the later years of high school that I became acutely aware that I had been afforded many opportunities that others simply had not. I was lucky.”

By age 15, children from low socioeconomic households are on average three years behind in school than those from high socioeconomic households.

This is educational disadvantage and it’s plaguing our country.

Research indicates that
the most powerful policy lever
to improve educational outcomes
for children is to improve
the quality of teaching.

TEACH FOR AUSTRALIA IS PART OF A GLOBAL MOVEMENT DEDICATED TO BREAKING THE CYCLE OF DISADVANTAGE THROUGH TEACHING AND LEADERSHIP IN EDUCATION.

What Can You Do?

Our vision is of an Australia where all children,
regardless of background, attain an
excellent education.
