What is the Fellowship?

The Fellowship is a Leadership Development Programme designed to give aspiring changemakers like yourself the opportunity to develop your skills and understanding of the education system. By being placed in a high-need school as a full-time salaried teacher, you will experience first hand the challenges in education at the grassroots level.

The Fellowship will allow you to deepen your understanding of the education landscape and the roots of education inequity, in order to lead change in the lives of students. Throughout the 2-year programme, you will be assigned a coach who will help you on your journey of personal growth.

By joining the Fellowship, you will lead, inspire and impact classrooms and communities, and create transformational change in their leadership and public school system.
