Company Profile

Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in this country are being let down by one of the most unfair education systems in the developed world, and the knock-on effect of this injustice lasts a lifetime. It’s a cycle we’re determined to break, but we need your help.

On our two-year Leadership Development Programme, we’ll support you to become a qualified teacher through a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership. By training on the job, you’ll have an immediate impact on the lives of the young people who need you the most.

And, whether you choose to remain in the classroom or pursue another career after the programme, you’ll benefit from Teach First’s influential network of organisations and businesses who share our commitment to ending educational inequality and value the skills and experience our participants gain.

After the two years, more than half of our trainees continue teaching in schools, many progressing into leadership positions. Others move into positions in government, industry and their own social enterprises, remaining connected to our goal of ending educational inequality.

Since 2002 Teach First has been finding and developing talented people to teach and lead in schools facing the greatest challenges, helping to change the lives of more than one million disadvantaged children so far.

Could you help us reach the day when no child’s educational success is limited by their background?
