  • Sell people stuff they don’t need

We need to unlock the potential in all our children – not just some. If we don’t, we fail the next generation.

You'll help the UK’s most disadvantaged children realise their potential – and discover your own.

You’ll also:

  • Earn a full salary
  • Receive world-class training, including a fully-funded PGDE – worth up to double the credits of a PGCE 
  • Develop skills all employers are looking for
  • Make lifelong friends and connections
  • Experience real responsibility from day one

What we are looking for


  • A 2:1 degree or above (2.2 degrees will also be considered)
