Preparing educators

Educators don’t just teach students: they teach within an ecosystem of classrooms, families, schools, communities, governments and the broader sector.

Our programs offer students alternative pathways and enhanced teacher preparation to equip them with the knowledge and capabilities needed for long-term career success.

By training confident, skilled and culturally aware educators, we are helping to create more equity, inclusion and opportunity in our schools.
