School leaders matter.

Effective school leadership is key to improving educational outcomes.

Teach To Lead seeks to help
break the cycle of disadvantage

by developing a pipeline of exceptional leaders
exclusively for schools serving low socioeconomic communities.

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
ALL SCHOOL-RELATED FACTORS
THAT CONTRIBUTE TO WHAT
STUDENTS LEARN AT SCHOOL.
IT ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT A
QUARTER OF TOTAL SCHOOL EFFECTS.”

– 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.
I have now set a single overarching goal
for my team, related to student learning,
with input from the whole team.”
