We work individually with each school in order to develop a partnership that suits the context of the school and supports the needs of the students and wider community.
We value the experience and expertise of partner schools.
Throughout the year, partner schools are invited to directly engage with applicants, Associates, Alumni, and other key stakeholders at various events, including:
At each event, partner schools are encouraged to share experiences, contribute insights and discuss challenges.
In order to evaluate the impact of Associates and Alumni, we invite partner schools to participate in regular research via focus groups and surveys. The research focuses on the achievements, progression and aspirations of students as well as their attitudes towards school.
Research findings are shared with partner schools to support their improvement aims. The findings also allow us and ultimately the partnership to continually improve.
Our Leadership Development Program is not limited to Associates. Through Teach For Australia, partner schools have the opportunity to further foster a culture of leadership within existing teacher bodies.

A partnership with us offers school principals the opportunity to further develop a network of likeminded leaders.
We deeply value the national partner school principal network and seek its guidance on various matters, regularly, including:
Schools are invited to advertise vacancies within our alumni network. Furthermore, we can assist partner schools to identify potential candidates for middle and senior leadership roles.
Having completed the Leadership Development Program, many Teach For Australia Alumni hold senior schools leadership positions and have insight into the challenges schools face, innovative ideas and successful experiences.
Partner schools commit to:
Partner schools sign a Partner Agreement with Teach For Australia. This agreement outlines the roles and responsibilities of each party that contribute to partnership impact. We work through the details of the Partnership Agreement with all partner schools.
