Teach for Australia

TFA-1Two Teach For Australia Associates will commence at Portland Secondary College in 2012. 

 

The Teach For Australia program has been successfully implemented in Victorian government secondary schools since the beginning of the school year.

 

Joining Portland Secondary College will be Adam Ross and Liam McNaughton.

 

Adam studied Commerce/Law at Melbourne Uni and has worked as a lawyer since 2006 initially in Commercial Law in Melbourne and London and is currently working for NAAJA Aboriginal Legal Aid in Darwin – helping the remote communities in the Top End.  His outside interests include language, travel and football and cricket. 

 

Liam McNaughton studied a Bachelor of Arts, specialising in History and Politics at Monash University and University of Queensland.  He has worked with the Bushfires Royal Commission and more recently with the Coroners Court.  Liam enjoys hiking, cycling and reading. 

 

“We are excited to have Liam McNaughton and Adam Ross joining our staff.  They will each have an experienced, Leading Teacher as their mentors and the team will be supported by the University of Melbourne,” Principal, Toni Burgoyne said.

 

The Teach For Australia Associates are rigorously screened and are high calibre individuals who have undergone a targeted nationwide selection process.  All Associates have completed their degrees, many have completed double degrees and all are very enthusiastic about contributing to the education of secondary school students.  Candidates undergo a multi-stage selection process that includes assessment against the characteristics and capabilities of an effective teacher.
