Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Following almost three intense months of study towards their Master of Teaching (Secondary) degrees, Teach For Australia’s sixth cohort of Associates began teaching across the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory, Victoria and Western Australia.

They join thousands of other teachers, Teach For Australia Associates and Alumni who continue to work in classrooms, schools and communities, seeking to raise the educational outcomes of all students every day.

Amongst the 67 new Associates:

  • seven are teaching in the Australian Capital Territory,
  • seven are teaching in the Northern Territory,
  • 40 are teaching in Victoria and
  • 13 are teaching in Western Australia.

In western Victoria’s Wimmera region, there are eight new Associates, who come from all over the country. Read more about them here from The Wimmera-Mail Times.

Importantly, the 67 new Associates are not alone in their journey into the classroom. Each is supported by an in-school mentor, Teach For Australia Teaching and Leadership Adviser and Deakin University School Academic Mentor.

Alumnus and Teaching and Leadership Adviser, Zid Mancenido, discusses the importance of support for early career teachers in an opinion editorial published in The Canberra Times.
