Become part of an active network of like-minded former trainees tackling educational inequality across schools, charities, business and government.
Everyone who completes our Training Programme becomes an ambassador and they’re all encouraged to get involved with our vibrant and proactive ambassador community.
Right now, around half of our ambassadors are still in teaching jobs throughout the UK, and more than 50 are already headteachers. The other half may not be in teaching but they’re still energetically advocating for educational equality 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.
Here’s how our ambassadors make a difference:
Ambassadors can connect with one another and the wider Teach First community to develop and test ideas that will help us achieve our vision. For example, 36 social enterprises have come from our ambassador community in the past ten years and more are on the way.
Ultimately, we invest in our ever-growing ambassador community because we believe that our trainees have a real opportunity to make education fairer. Ambassadors can influence change in pupils, at school and in the wider education system. As qualified and experienced leaders they have taken up roles in management – in schools, businesses, charities and government – and are influencing the debate about education in the UK.
Our ambassador community is actively involved with many of the organisations that support us. Being part of this network gives you access to some of the most influential companies, charities and experts in the professional world.
Many organisations value the skills and experiences trainees gain during our Training Programme. Being part of our active community really opens doors, both in terms of furthering our mission to end educational inequality and furthering your career.
