Teach For Australia contributes to a broader network of organisations that deeply value educational outcomes and equity. We are not alone in seeking an Australia where all children, regardless of background, receive an excellent education.
We facilitate a connection for our Partner Schools with initiatives developed by our Alumni and other organisations who share our vision. We encourage Partner Schools to contact organisations directly if you are interested in discussing possible partnerships.
In the Northern Territory, only 50% of students graduate from high school. Students in regional and remote schools face additional hurdles to gaining exposure to professional networks and career options. Blue Sky Connect is a not for profit organisation founded by TFA Alumni Hannah Morris (Cohort 2016) and Jonathan Chow (Cohort 2015) that assists young people in secondary schools across the Northern Territory in accessing competitive work experience opportunities at leading professional organisations. Through our connections in schools across the Territory and our professional networks, we work with careers advisers, teachers and workplaces to help match up students with a workplace that suits their specific interests and aspirations.
Maths Pathway is a holistic Learning and Teaching Model that leverages technology to enable teachers to target each student’s point of need, and allows them to focus on practices that have the greatest impact on student learning. The model is currently available for Year 5 – Year 10 mathematics students, and has proven success in a broad range of school contexts. Maths Pathway was founded by Teach for Australia alumni, who designed the model to help teachers increase their impact in the classroom, and use real-time student learning data to inform their day-to-day practice.
Australian Schools Plus is a national charity that makes it simple, effective and tax-deductible for donors who value education to give to disadvantaged schools. More than 4,600 schools across Australia (Government, Catholic and Independent) are eligible* for support through Schools Plus.
By matching donors with schools, we support initiatives that have the greatest impact in students’ lives. This includes projects that focus on student wellbeing, effective teaching, student and family engagement and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education.
*Eligible schools have a value below 1000 on the Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) as listed on the My School website.
