Start your application

Apply now

We encourage you to submit your application as soon as you are able. While we recruit in three rounds throughout the year, learning areas close following each round depending on how many candidates were accepted within each learning area. 

Applications are assessed on a rolling basis, so the sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll hear whether you have progressed to the interview stage.

Before you do hit “submit” on your application, we recommend that you attend an Information Session or talk to a recruiter by emailing apply@teachforaustralia.org so that we can work with you to ensure you put your best foot forward in your application.

COVID-19 update

Our team is committed to helping end educational inequity in Australia. This means we’re still committed to providing you with the same life-changing roles, qualifications and leadership opportunities throughout our Leadership Development Program. 

The safety of our staff and our applicants is, and will always be, our highest priority. Our entire three-stage application process has evolved to be fully online, limiting any unnecessary in-person contact. We also want applicants to have all the usual information at their fingertips, meaning all face-to-face interviewsnational webinars, meet a TFA recruiter chats, Alumni Q&As and application workshops have been redesigned to take place through digital channels or over Zoom.
