What we’re about

Teach For Australia is a values-driven organisation where we:

  • SERVE THE STUDENTS – Everyone at TFA works in service of our vision for children and young people.
  • HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS – Having high expectations – for ourselves, of others, and of what should be possible for students – is essential.

  • GET THERE TOGETHER – We have a big vision and mission. We can’t – and won’t – achieve it on our own.
