The program is designed to build the skills that matter most in schools facing the greatest challenges.
By building these fundamental skills, such as strategic planning,
coaching others, leading challenging conversations and building effective teams,
Teach To Lead aims to influence and effect real change
in schools that need the strongest leaders.
“LEADERSHIP IS SECOND ONLY TO CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION AMONG

THAT CONTRIBUTE TO WHAT

– Leithwood et al, 2004.
The two-year program is open to all
teachers in leadership roles and is not exclusive
to Teach For Australia Alumni.
“Teach To Lead has exceeded my expectations and changed the way I approach my leadership role.
