Susannah Schoeffel

‘I’m at SVA with a strong belief in education equity, with the understanding of what levers we have to improve educational outcomes for Australian students, and with the knowledge that SVA is fully committed to learning about how to create impact for a more equitable Australia.’

Susannah joined the Evidence for Learning team in May 2019. Her current portfolio includes tailoring evidence assets to the Australian context, supporting education jurisdictions to use evidence assets and working alongside educators to help great practice become common practice.

With a background in teaching, Susannah first joined SVA as a member of the Bright Spots Schools Connection team in February 2016 and has worked at convening and supporting school networks, bringing professionals from education, business, research and industry together to build the capacity of school to deliver excellent educational opportunities for their students.

Susannah has worked with young Australians across the spectrum of development, from early learning to tertiary settings. She holds a Bachelor of Exercise Science from the Australian Catholic University, and Master of Teaching and a Master of Education Policy (International) from the University of Melbourne where she focused on the selection and induction of graduate teachers in a global context.
