We now offer a range of services to multi-academy trusts

Our partnership

You may know that Teach First recruits and trains new teachers for individual schools. After listening to school leaders, we've made some changes. We now offer a range of services to multi-academy trusts and groups of schools, each focused on supporting those tackling the biggest challenges and serving communities most in need.
We want to develop a partnership that is designed around your needs, plans for the long-term and works across your Trust at every level. We're here to make sure we unlock the potential in every child, no matter their background.

Recruiting new teachers

Attract dedicated trainee teachers to your Trust's schools. Map out your needs, and we'll help find the talent to fill your vacancies. Here's how:
  • Our training is rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
  • If you have specialist needs, we can tailor training through a range of options.
  • We provide up to £2,600 for each new trainee to fund their in-school mentoring.
  • Need experienced teachers? We can help you recruit from our network of over 10,000 trained teachers, 2,000 middle and senior leaders and over 65 headteachers.
We decided to give Teach First a try... and we got the sort of people we'd been looking for: passionate, committed, hard-working and who challenged our thinking.

I don't think there is any other country where a grassroots organisation has had such a profound impact on raising teacher professionalism as Teach First has in England.

We want schools serving the most disadvantaged communities to get their fair share of support. We bring together these schools from across the country to build a network that has access to resources, expertise and peers to learn from and work with.
Gain access to any of our 30-plus networks across the country, covering teachers, school leaders and broader organisations such as charities, businesses and social enterprises.
