Teach First is an independent charity that provides the training and support to enable high-calibre graduates and experienced professionals to make a real impact in addressing one of the UK’s most damaging social issues, educational disadvantage. At the same time, while they are transforming the lives of young people in schools around the country, Teach First helps graduates to dramatically enhance their own career potential, in schools and elsewhere, and become part of a movement that is effecting profound change throughout the UK.
Teach First offers an exceptional Leadership Development Programme that focuses on education, and which includes in its first year a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) qualification. With high-quality training, supportive coaching and ambassador initiatives, Teach First provides a unique platform of skills and experience to take forward into any future career. The results are startling, drawing praise from all quarters, including government, headteachers and businesses who continue to back our ongoing expansion
Put simply, graduates who can engage, manage and inspire a class of young people can handle pretty well any situation in any industry. Few other options offer the same degree of genuine responsibility so early. And rarely, if ever, will graduates have the opportunity to make such a direct and important impact.
Having already benefited from a quality education, graduates can now transform the futures of young people, and build a foundation for an influential career.
