Are you an Early Career Teacher in your First Five Years in the Profession?

This is for you.

Having worked with hundreds of Early Career Teachers over the past few years, we understand the major challenges that lead to as many as 50% of our new teachers leaving the profession in their first five years. 

We have developed Thrive in Your First Five to address these challenges and empower Early Career Teachers to thrive.

Monthly Sessions

Once a month your cohort will gather for 90mins via Zoom in a facilitated workshop to support and learn with each other.

Responsive & Practical

We are committed to responding to your real-life challenges with practical strategies that will help you thrive in & out of the classroom

Small & Supportive

Our cohorts kept small to ensure a fully immerse and engaging experience. No more Zooms with a hundred faces!

Outside of School Hours

Our cohorts meet after school to ensure you can engage fully in our program without the need for casuals.
