Frequently Asked Questions

What are the eligibility requirements for Teach First's Taster Programmes?  

To be eligible to apply for one of our Taster Programmes you’ll need:

  • a Grade C (or equivalent) or above in GCSE English and Maths
  • your degree or A-Levels to meet our Training Programme curriculum requirements
  • to currently be studying for an undergraduate degree, in either your first, second or penultimate year of study.  

If you’re in your second or penultimate year of study, you need to be predicted a 2.1 degree or above (2.2 degrees will also be considered).  

For our STEM Talent Taster Programme, you’ll also need to be studying for a degree in a STEM subject (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) or have relevant A-Levels at Grade B (or equivalent) or above in one of those subjects. 

What should I do if I’m eligible for multiple different Taster Programmes? Will I able to choose which one I want to do?

When filling out the application form, you’ll be able to tell us which of the three Taster Programmes you’d like to be considered for.

You’ll then be shown the two/three dates for each of the different programmes and be asked to select your availability. If you’re successful, you’ll be made an offer and these choices will be used to match you to a specific programme. If you only want to be considered for one programme, you should just tick the one you want to take part in, when applying.  

Can I complete more than one Taster Programme?

Whilst each programme will have bespoke content, there will also be a significant proportion of content which is the same across all three programmes. Therefore, you will only be able to complete one programme as standard.
