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.

Teach For Australia is an equal opportunity employer committed to creating an inclusive environment that values and celebrates the diversity of its people. We encourage talented people from all backgrounds, abilities and identities to apply for our roles. Please note that candidates must have the right to work in Australia.
