Teach First

In the UK today, the link between how much your family earn and how well you do in school and in life is stronger than almost anywhere in the developed world. It doesn’t have to be this way.

We are a charity working to end educational inequality. We believe inspirational teaching and leadership is key to helping every child succeed, regardless of their background. Since 2002 over 7000 graduates have joined the Teach First Leadership Development Programme (LDP) in schools across England and Wales and helped _______________________________________change the lives of thousands of young people in low-income _______________________________________communities.

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.
