Teach First is an influential charity and an increasingly powerful movement founded to address this problem directly. Now in its tenth year, it has already changed the lives of thousands of young people. Teach First harnesses the energy, enthusiasm and drive of exceptional graduates and experienced professionals to provide leadership, motivation and, above all, inspirational teaching in schools in challenging circumstances across England. At the same time Teach First’s two-year Leadership Development Program gives graduates the skills, experience and leadership development training to excel in careers in any field.
Visible Women Inspire day with Teach First
The Visible Women Campaign and Teach First are partnering to host an ‘Inspire Day’ at an all girls’ secondary school in London, offering six female university students and graduates insight into teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as a career. This day is designed to help redress the current under-representation of great female and ethnic minority leaders and role models in the STEM sector and the teaching profession. 6 successful candidates will be selected to attend the event.
Cultural Societies Network
Organised by Elevation Networks in partnership with Teach First, the Cultural Societies Network Summit offered a platform for budding student leaders to be empowered, inspired and equipped to become trailblazers in their respective universities.
The conference consisted of various workshops and sessions led by prominent young professionals and a team of Teach First facilitators. The skills workshops had our student leaders thinking ‘outside the box’ – using unorthodox methods to convey tasks.
