Working at Teach First
At Teach First, we are passionate about what we do. We are united in our belief that educational disadvantage is wrong and this is what drives us to aim high and strive for excellence. Our shared motivation has already driven us to achieve great things. Working in collaboration with our partners we have changed the lives of thousands of pupils, but there is still so much more to be done. We remain committed to working ever harder to close the gap in achievement, access and aspiration between the UK's poorest and wealthiest children.
We are proud of our work and approach it with positivity, energy and enthusiasm. Guided by our values, we feel empowered to make and challenge decisions in order to deliver the best results. We trust our colleagues' integrity and this gives us the freedom to work in a way that suits our individual roles. We are rewarded for the impact we make, not the hours we work. We are supported to create opportunities for personal development and lead our career progression. To enable this we have designed a talent development programme to ensure we have access to the right learning and development opportunities to support every colleague in reaching their full potential.
We all share a sense of urgency in relation to our vision and believe that together we can, and will, make change happen. In order to achieve this, we believe in the power of diversity and advancing equality. We harness the different perspectives, experiences, and talents of our society in order to learn from each other and best serve our culturally rich and diverse communities. This strengthens the movement to work towards a future where no child's educational success is limited by their socio-economic background.
As we continue to grow and extend our impact, we seek talented, passionate individuals from all backgrounds to help us address educational disadvantage through the development of highly effective teachers and leaders.
