Tailored professional development for emerging school leaders


School leaders matter.

Effective school leadership is key to improving educational outcomes. Teach To Lead accelerates the development of emerging leaders within schools serving low socioeconomic communities, to improve student and school outcomes.

It is a selective leadership development program for teachers with formal leadership roles in schools – and is not exclusive to Teach For Australia Alumni.

We work with both primary and secondary schools throughout Australia, and target middle leaders who are responsible for a team throughout the year, deliver professional development, provide feedback on classroom observation and are in a position to coach other staff members. We seek individuals who are focused on results, committed to addressing educational inequity, recognise the value in working with others and have growth mindsets about themselves and those around them.

The program is designed to build the skills that matter most in schools facing the greatest challengesBy 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.
