More Information

Teach First is an education charity, working in partnership with schools and other organisations to ensure that all children have an excellent education, regardless of their background. We recruit high calibre, passionate individuals to teach in schools serving pupils from low-income communities. Our participants join a Leadership Development Programme which involves teaching for a minimum of two years, achieving a PGCE and accessing wider leadership skills training. The Summer Institute is a six-week intensive course designed to prepare participants to begin teaching in September and for the rest of their training which will continue whilst in school. The first four weeks are spent in the area in which participants will teach and the final two are held at the University of Warwick.

In the long term we are creating a movement of leaders who are committed to influencing change in education, from both inside and outside the classroom. Our powerful community of ambassadors (those who have already completed the two year programme) which will grow to more than 2,000 this year, working to improve educational outcomes for hundreds of thousands of children.
