About Teach First

With a fair education, everything’s possible. Too often though, a child’s path through life is set by their background, not their potential to succeed. That can’t be fair. At Teach First, we’re determined to break this cycle of injustice, and we need your help.

Our two-year Training Programme is a graduate scheme like no other. It’s your chance to become a leader. To release your potential. And to be part of something that matters.

On the Training Programme, we’ll pay you a salary as you qualify to teach through a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership (PGDE). We trust you with real responsibility from day one. You’ll have countless new experiences, and develop skills that can take you anywhere. All while teaching the children our society is failing – giving them the futures they deserve.

If you’re not yet in your final year of study, we offer two-day Taster Programmes, specifically for first, second and penultimate-year students. These experiences allow you to boost your CV and skillset, whilst finding out what the Training Programme is really all about.
They run online or in-person across the year, and we also have Taster Programmes specifically designed for under-represented groups.
With your talents and ambition, you have many career options ahead of you. But few are more meaningful than teaching.

Discover your future with Teach First.
