Celebrating Ingrid Sealey: Empowering Education

May 29, 2023

We proudly celebrate the outstanding achievements of Ingrid Sealey, the former Director of the Fogarty Foundation’s EDvance program, whose remarkable work in the field of education has been widely recognized. With an unwavering commitment to improving educational outcomes for children in challenging communities in Western Australia, Ingrid’s dedication and expertise have made a significant and positive impact in the region.

Following her tenure at EDvance, Ingrid’s passion for transforming education led her to establish Teach Well. This remarkable platform is dedicated to providing high-impact teaching training to schools across Australia, with a focus on bridging the educational gap faced by students in low socio-economic communities. Sealey’s experience gained from her time at EDvance have played an important role in the development and success of Teach Well.

Ingrid’s commitment to education have already yielded remarkable results. Through Teach Well, she has provided training to thousands of teachers and leaders, positively impacting the lives of over 80,000 students. Notably, Teach Well has extended its reach to serve regional and remote areas, where it has achieved a threefold representation of indigenous students compared to the national average. Sealey’s expertise and dedication have enabled Teach Well to deliver substantial improvements in student engagement, participation, and overall learning outcomes.

As director and founder of Teach Well, Ingrid and her team were recently recognised with the first-place award for the Oceania region in the prestigious Cartier Women’s Initiative, which is a testament to the importance and effectiveness of her work. This remarkable accolade not only highlights Sealey’s passion and dedication but also provides invaluable support and resources to further develop and expand Teach Well’s mission. The grant funding of USD $100,000 will undoubtedly contribute to the continued growth and impact of Teach Well, ensuring that more teachers and schools across Australia can benefit from their evidence-based practices.

Through Ingrid’s work, she has empowered teachers, enhanced classroom practices, and positively impacted the lives of thousands of students across Australia. The recognition and support garnered through the Cartier Women’s Initiative award stand as a testament to Sealey’s excellent contributions to the field of education. With Ingrid Sealey at the helm, Teach Well continues to drive positive change and transform educational outcomes, promising a brighter and more inclusive future for students in challenging communities.
