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.

Secondary School Teacher of ICT (Former Employee) - Manchester
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.

Recruitment Lead (Current Employee) - Birmingham, West Midlands
You can often work from home. Managers are flexible as is the charity. Lack of progression, but overall a great place to work. Nice offices as well, with free drinks on Friday.
