Podcast Episode #5 Litigation Lawyer to Teacher, interview with Nick Spinks from Teach for Australia

In this episode, Leah interviewed Nicholas Spinks, Recruitment Team Manager from Teach for Australia, an ambitious not-for-profit organisation with a vision to provide excellent education to all children in Australia, regardless of background.

Teach for Australia’s program recruits Australia’s top talent into teaching whilst partnering with schools serving low socio-economic backgrounds.

Nick shared his own career story, transitioning from working as a Litigation Lawyer with a top legal firm in Brisbane to high school teacher in a small country town in Western Victoria.  He also provided some insights into his reasons for leaving the law, his own experience in the Teach For Australia program and how you too can apply to be in the next cohort of teachers commencing their new career in early 2021.
