The Leadership Development Programme is just the beginning of the work we are doing to fulfil our mission, and we hope our participants will continue to engage with our vision long after they have completed the programme.
All participants who complete the LDP automatically become ambassadors, and are encouraged to get involved with our vibrant and proactive alumni community. The ambassador network is a key tool in mobilising and engaging all the incredible participants who have spent two years honing invaluable leadership skills, humility and confidence.
Currently around half of our ambassadors are still in teaching jobs throughout the UK, and 38 ambassadors of our programme are already in headteacher roles. The other half of our ambassador network is energetically advocating for change through their roles in business, the third sector and government. In fact, 62% of those ambassadors employed in business work for organisations that support Teach First.
United by their shared experience and insight into the challenges schools face, practical knowledge of what works, and the expertise and commitment to address the Teach First vision, the ambassador network has evolved into a powerful and dynamic force for social change.
