On Teach For Australia's three-day Lead-Up Education Experience, use your summer to kick-start your career, grow your leadership, and develop a deep understanding of the 'on the ground' issues that confront the education of Australia's young people.

As it stands, not every child in Australia has access to the education they deserve: children from the lowest income households are on average three years behind in school. Teach For Australia seeks to break the cycle of educational inequity and we invite you to join us over summer.

Gain insight into Teach For Australia's one-of-a-kind graduate Leadership Development Program and kick-start your career on our virtual Lead-Up Education Experience. This experience lasts three days and will give you insight into the life of a Teach For Australia Associate and a chance to lead up in a new way.

On the 'Lead Up' experience, you will learn how Associates combine training, work and life. You'll see how even young leaders can create immediate impact and you will grow your own leadership capacity by working with work like-minded individuals on a proposal to give students access to the education all young people deserve. The impact you have could be immediate.

We'll also give you the low-down on how to apply for the Program and what subjects will help you step into the classroom.

Over the three days you will:

  • Engage in dialogue with teachers, students and leaders to deepen your understanding of issues they are facing, and how they are working to address these problems.
  • Work with a multi-disciplinary team of students and an Alumni mentor to propose a plan to address these issues.
  • Perfect your presentation skills using the techniques for engagement that teachers use every day and present your proposal to leaders in the education and social enterprise sector.
  • Work on your own leadership skills in areas like building teams, creating shared goals, maintaining motivation, and leveraging others' insights to find innovative solutions.

I love planning awesome lessons that can make maths accessible and fun for all of my students (my class rarely says, ‘I just hate maths’ anymore!).

You can’t hope for a perfect entry into a challenging career; and through the scrapes and bumps and bruises, you learn far more than you ever could in a university classroom.
