The Educator’s research team received nominations for the Most Influential Educators list from 6 to 31 March. Prospective candidates were sought based on the following criteria: education leaders, including but not limited to, founders and administrators of a school or program; changemakers who have made an impact on many students and school communities in Australia in the face of adversity; award-winning educators that have been recognised for their contributions to the Australian education industry; and educators who have demonstrated innovation and creativity that is driving the education industry forward.
The research team obtained details of the nominees’ achievements and contributions to the profession. The nominees were evaluated based on the overall impact of their contributions. The final list consisted of 45 educators and other professionals who delivered specific outcomes that significantly influenced the Australian education industry.
The Educator’s Most Influential Educators 2023 report is proudly supported by the Positive Education Schools Association (PESA).
