The selection process is rigorous to ensure candidates are appropriate for Teach To Lead.
Applications are open to primary and secondary leaders across Australia for the 2017 cohort.
For applicants in Victorian government schools, Teach To Lead is delivered in partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
For applicants from other schools across Australia, up to ten places are available for National Fellows, funded through Teach To Lead’s philanthropic partners and school contributions. For National Fellows, the majority of coaching sessions will occur via video or telephone. Your coach will make at least one visit to your school at the start of the program.
Beyond the coaching, all other aspects of the program are consistent with the Victorian program. For the workshops, National Fellows are expected to fund travel to their nearest airport, and Teach To Lead will fund flights.
