An introduction to Teach First

A webinar for experienced hires who want to find out more about changing career and gaining Qualified Teacher Status with Teach First in 2024.


Since 2003, we’ve been improving the life chances and choices for children experiencing poverty. We train talented teachers and equip school leaders working in some of the poorest areas of the country – to give children with the fewest opportunities access to a great education.

We’re the largest teacher training provider in England, recruiting between 1400-1750 trainee teachers every year. Often, 40-45% are experienced hires. These are individuals coming to us from other careers or already working in education.

You’ll learn about how our Training Programme works and get your questions answered by past recruits and coaches who support trainees on our programme. In a nutshell, you’ll earn a salary, gain a fully-funded international qualification, and benefit from in-school training with a comprehensive support network.

Our guest speaker is a past recruit who became the founding principal/headteacher of a school in Bolton. You'll also be able to ask a current trainee any questions that you have.

We know becoming a teacher is a big choice and there are plenty of options. Join our webinar to learn why Teach First and joining our 15,000 community could be the best route for you.

If you're unable to make the event but would like to learn more - please reach out to Pip at psaran@teachfirst.org.uk. Please note this is the last Experienced Hires webinar in 2023 before we close for our two week winter shutdown in December.
