About Teach For Australia

Teach For Australia (TFA) is an innovative non-profit organisation and part of a global movement dedicated to developing leadership in classrooms and communities to ensure all children achieve their potential.

All students have the capacity to succeed in their educational pursuits, but there is inequity between educational outcomes of students from different backgrounds. In Australia, children from the lowest income households are on average three years behind in school. Without addressing this inequity, the gap grows over time and, if carried on to the next generation of students, a cycle of educational disadvantage is created.

We recruit Australia’s future leaders and inspire, connect and empower them to a lifetime of action to achieve educational equity. Our vision is of an Australia where all children, regardless background, attain an excellent education.
