Teach First - 121 meeting for professionals

26 February 2019 at 12:30 to 26 February 2019 at 16:00 in Birmingham at the Second Cup Coffee

Event info:

Among developed countries, the UK has one of the worst rates of educational inequality. We believe your background should not dictate your destiny, and that everybody should have an equal chance to succeed. Our Leadership Development Programme places talented and committed people into classrooms where they are needed the most to help end this injustice.

Over a third of the individuals who joined our programme in 2018 came from other careers. If you hold a STEM, French or Spanish-related degree or A-levels, you may qualify to teach one of these subjects.

If you are considering teaching science, geography, modern foreign languages or maths, meet one-to-one with a Teach First recruiter to find out more about how Teach First can help you move into a fulfilling and challenging career, and support you in developing your subject knowledge to teach it.

The Leadership Development Programme offers:

  • salaried from September 2019
  • a fully-funded and salaried route into teaching, including an internationally recognised Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership (PGDE)
  • classroom based training leading to your Qualified Teacher Status
  • in addition to three dedicated support links – professional mentor (school), academic tutor (university) & one-to-one coaching (Teach First)

To find out more about how Teach First can help you move into a fulfilling and challenging career, sign up for one a 121 meeting.
