About us

  • Located in the midst of the action on Flinders Lane in Melbourne’s CBD, with teams based across the country.
  • A dynamic and growing not-for-profit organisation.
  • Passionate, professional and ambitious team, working together to close the education gap.
  • Flexible and inclusive workplace culture with a focus on work/life balance.

There is a three year achievement gap between Australia’s best and worst performing school students. Worse, this gap is largely defined by socioeconomic, geographic and ethnic lines. Teach For Australia’s vision is of an Australia, where all children, regardless of background, attain an excellent education.

We work towards this vision by recruiting highly competent individuals from diverse academic backgrounds and training and developing them to become exceptional teachers and inspirational leaders that meet the needs of schools in low socioeconomic communities and the broader education system.

The Australian Government Department of Education is a major supporter of the Teach For Australia initiative.
