About Teach First

Not every kid gets a fair start in life:

A. So what?
B. So let's fix it.

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. We’re determined to break this cycle of injustice, and we need your help.

On our two-year 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.

We also offer a number of undergraduate opportunities – including internships and taster experiences – so you can find out what the Training Programme is really all about.

With your talents and ambition, you have many career options ahead of you. But few are more meaningful than teaching. You’ll develop skills all employers are looking for, make lifelong friends and connections and help build a fair education for all.

"All three days consisted of meeting their partners with workshops to learn more about key skills needed for teaching" Read full review


"The STEM Online experience was well structured, allowing participants to have exposure to a mixture of informative sessions, skills development workshops led by Teach First and sessions led by external organisations. Each day of the experience was different, but each session delivered was very relevant and allowed me to learn something new and consider how to implement what I had learnt moving forward. It was great to be able to learn more about the different things going on at the organisation and start to develop core transferrable skills for the classroom along the way." Read full review
