Teach For Australia

Want to change the world with your Science degree?

Students aren’t getting involved in science. Only half of Year 12 students now study science, compared to nine out of 10 in the 1990s. You could change this.

Teach For Australia offers an award-winning two year Leadership Development Program, a Master of Teaching on scholarship, and full salary and benefits as you work as a teacher in a disadvantaged school. Every day you’ll get to share your love of science and empower the next generation of problem solvers.

TFA’s Leadership Development Program turns grad program on its head. You’ll get the responsibility, stakeholder manager and possibility to create change right from Day One. As TFA alum, you’ll have the skills and experience to set yourself apart when you re-enter the job market.

Applications close on the 20th of August.
