From next year, more graduates will be trained to be teachers by Teach First after the government has supported the expansion of the charity.
The aim is to train 2,000 exceptional graduates as teachers by 2015/16, making Teach First one of the biggest graduate recruiters in the UK. The charity works to ensure every child in the UK has access to quality education.
Teach First is also planning to expand into new parts of the country for the first time and will have a presence on the south coast from 2013 and in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire from 2014.
