An introduction to Teach First: career changers and young professionals

25 June 2019 at 18:30 - 20:00 in London at the Teach First

Event information:

We are now open for applications to train to teach with us in summer 2020. This is the best time to apply as we have full location and subject availability. As this is an early recruitment window, if unsuccessful, you will uniquely be able to apply again from September 2019 for summer 2020. Applying early also enables more time to prepare for getting into teaching both pragmatically and for subject knowledge.

This event is aimed specifically at young professionals and career changers, who would like to explore Teach First and our programme. It will enable you to find out more about the charity, the structure and benefits of our route into teaching - all in an informal manner. You'll also be able to get your questions answered by a dedicated members of the recruitment team and an individual who changed careers with Teach First, over light refreshments.

The programme offers:

  • school-based and salaried programme: earn a salary from your first day in September and throughout your training, including school holidays
  • no fees to pay: fully-funded PGDE: unlike some other routes, you pay no fees for your training and receive a salary
  • three points of professional support: support from a subject expert, an in-school mentor and a Teach First mentor, plus the Teach First community
  • training twice-rated outstanding by Ofsted: 99% of our trainees get a grade 1 or 2 QTS ranking
