Teach for Australia - Leadership Development Program


The Leadership Development Program would suit final-year students, and successful applicants would be teaching in their area of expertise, whether it be legal studies or the field of their concurrent degree.


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, to level the playing field for young people across Australia by recruiting and developing leaders in education.


As a leader in the classroom, you’ll share your passions with young people and act as a role model and mentor. You’ll develop the skills and experience to enable you to lead effectively, with the opportunity to make a tangible positive impact on students, schools and communities – every single day.

You will teach in subject areas directly related to previous studies (regardless of whether you have just graduated or are more than 10 years out) and in accordance with the subject requirements of placement schools. All Associates teach secondary school level classes ranging from Year 7.


All candidates must meet four criteria to be eligible to apply for the Leadership Development program.

  • You must be an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident at time of applying (New Zealand citizens must have Australian Permanent Residency at the time of applying).

  • You must hold a Bachelor degree in a discipline other than teaching by end of the year.

  • You must be willing to accept a placement within one of our jurisdictions.

  • Be able to enrol in at least two learning areas (see below).
