Teach First is a charity that provides the training and support to enable high-calibre graduates 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 and experienced professionals 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.
At the heart of Teach First is a unique two-year Leadership Development Programme. Challenging, stimulating and practical, it has been designed to develop your leadership skills, giving you the ability to adapt to new or changing situations and inspire enthusiasm and ambition in the classroom.
To be successful in engaging the full potential of your students – and to take advantage of the opportunities Teach First presents – you’ll need to be someone with bright ideas, gritty determination, awesome communication skills and a desire to defy convention. You’ll combine a strong work ethic and self-discipline with warmth, empathy and humility and resilience.
