Great teachers change lives, and through our Leadership Development and Future Leaders Programs we work to break the cycle of educational inequity for students across Australia.
We recruit exceptional graduates, career changers and future leaders into the classroom to inspire, connect and empower. Partnering exclusively with schools serving low socioeconomic communities, we work in the regions and communities that need us the most. We focus on two main areas: outstanding teacher quality and skilled leadership.

Here’s what some of our graduates have to say about studying and working with TFA.
By age 15, children from low socioeconomic households are on average three years behind in school than their peers from higher socioeconomic backgrounds. And sometimes they never get the opportunity to catch up at all. We want to change that.
We’d love your school to partner with us and help fight educational inequity. When you hire a TFA teacher, (called an Associate) they come with subject area expertise, exceptional leadership qualities, an innovation mindset, and genuine enthusiasm, to help to make a positive impact on your students – and your school.
Despite our prosperity and our positioning as a place where everyone has a ‘fair go’, it’s a sad fact that Australia has one of the most inequitable education systems in the developed world. Here you can learn more about what’s happening – and why.
Teach For Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands across Australia and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
