What you will be doing

Too often, a child’s path through life is set by their background, not their potential to succeed. That can’t be fair. We’re determined to break this cycle of injustice, and we need your help.

On our two-year Training Programme, we’ll pay you a salary as you qualify to teach through a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership (PGDE). Teach First is ranked highly in the Times Top 100 graduate employers because we trust you with real responsibility, from day one, and help you to pick up invaluable transferable skills for the future.

  • You will earn a full salary
  • You will receive world-class training, including a fully-funded PGDE – worth up to double the credits of a PGCE
  • You will join one of the top graduate employers in the UK
  • You will develop skills all employers are looking for
  • You will make lifelong friends and connections
  • You will experience real responsibility from day one and make a difference by building a fair education for all

What you will have

With your talents and ambition, you have many career options ahead of you. But few are more meaningful than teaching. By training on the job, you’ll have an immediate impact on the lives of the young people who need you most. And you’ll discover a lot about your own potential at the same time.

We would love to hear from you if:

  • You have the right to work in the UK or are a UK citizen 
  • You have  or are expecting a 2:1 degree (with Honours) or higher (2:2 will be considered in certain circumstances) 
  • You have A-Levels and/or a degree that meet our curriculum requirements
  • You have a grade C (or equivalent) in GCSE Maths and English and a grade C in one Science for primary teaching.
