About Education Changemakers

Education Changemakers (EC) was started by former teachers and principals who were consistently able to turn around incredibly challenging schools in Australia and Africa. EC was founded on a belief that the best solutions to ending education disadvantage came when teachers were able to stand up and propose answers to the realities that they were facing.

EC now runs a range of award winning initiatives for teachers across Australia. These include: 

  • The New Teacher Program: Working to help solve the problem that 1 in 2 new teachers leave the profession in their first three years, we provide powerful support for new teachers in their first year in schools.
  • The Changemaker Program: Half of Australia’s current school principals are due to retire by 2018. Through the Changemaker Program we are building a generation of education leaders who can solve problems and take the best initiatives to scale.

Each year hundreds of Australia’s most passionate and high impact educators are brought together for two incredible days in Melbourne for The EC Conference.

We became a B Corp because we loved the idea of being a for profit company, for good. Our team has started a number of successful non profits however, for this venture we knew we needed to have the speed and freedoms that come with a for profit structure.

The Change We Seek®

Education Changemakers seeks to see a great teacher in every Australian class, a great leader in every school, and a great school in every community.

What makes us a better company?
