Jo Lampert


Jo Lampert is a Professor of Social Inclusion and Teacher Education at La Trobe University. Jo is known for having led equity-based education programs where young people and their communities are included in how teachers are prepared. Over many years she has taught in mainstream schools, prisons, alternative education programs, remote Indigenous communities and universities both in Canada and Australia.

Jo is currently Associate Dean of Partnerships and Director of the Commonwealth and State supported NEXUS alternative pathway into teaching, a community-engaged teacher education program designed to prepare culturally diverse, high-quality teachers for metropolitan, regional and rural Secondary schools in Victoria, many of which are hard-to-staff. She is a strong believer that young people, including those who have been historically excluded, are experts in their own experience.
