TeachFirst - A great way to build your skill set
Resilience, confidence and effective communication are three key skills that any TeachFirst participant will develop as a result of being placed in a challenging school. Working with other teachers to help children achieve their full potential is a rewarding experience.

Great colleagues, lots of autonomy in your own work, great holidays.
Little remuneration for the hours you put in, very stressful working with challenging pupils and SLT members!
A prestigious and challenging graduate scheme. The programme places a strong emphasis on communication, team-work, leadership and creativity. Participants receive 6 weeks of intensive training before being placed as a teacher in a challenging urban secondary school. During the scheme they are expected to gain qualified teacher status, network with the scheme's sponsors and affect a marked change in their schools.
