Job description

If you’re looking for a real challenge - one where you can use your intelligence and personality to help solve one of the country’s biggest problems - Teach First has a unique opportunity for you.

The programme
Informed by 14 years of development, our world-class programme combines global best practice in leadership development and teacher training. During the programme you’ll gain a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma, worth double the credits of a PGCE, to become a qualified teacher. Covering both education and leadership, you’ll then have the option to top the qualification up to a Master’s degree.

You’ll also acquire the key skills and personal qualities needed to develop you into an effective leader - someone who can make a real impact. If you can inspire in the classroom, you can bring resilience, efficiency and imagination to any environment, no matter where your career takes you.

Your future
Over 10,000 people have joined the LDP so far. Many have remained in the classroom and many others are working in leadership roles across all sectors of the economy. What they all have in common is a belief that every child should have equal opportunities in education and in life, and the knowledge they are contributing towards this goal.

Apply now to join the programme in 2017 and you could have your offer for a career-defining opportunity in as little as six weeks.
