Teach for Australia and online trading major IG Group have announced a new three year partnership.
Introduced through their respective global networks, this is the first time Teach For Australia and IG Group have come together, finding common ground in their support for educational equity.
Teach For Australia’s vision is for an Australia where education gives every child, regardless of background, greater choice for their future.
IG Group will help support TFA’s programs which are growing a community of leaders committed to equity for children, by recruiting, training and empowering more people to take up teaching in the classrooms where they are needed most.
TFA CEO Melodie Potts Rosevear commented:
“We are so grateful to come together with IG Group for this new partnership. Great teachers and school leaders make a vital difference in the lives of our young people, and can help close the education disadvantage gap. We warmly welcome IG Group to our TFA community.”
The partnership with Teach For Australia is part of IG’s international Brighter Future initiative.
“IG’s Brighter Future initiative was created to further our commitment to our people, our customers and our communities. It seeks to empower members of our communities through equal access to education and social mobility” said Kevin Algeo, CEO of APAC at IG.
“In Australia, we’ve partnered with Melodie and her passionate team at Teach for Australia. Their overwhelming drive and dedication to develop teachers and community leaders who are committed to equity for children has been an inspiration for us.”
