Who we are
We believe education is the most powerful tool to help a child fulfil their potential.
Teach First is an education charity
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 are Teach First
Who we’re working for
One in four children in the UK live in poverty.
They don’t get the opportunities they need to thrive in school.
And when they leave, they’re more likely to end up out of work or further training.
We’re here to help them fulfil their potential.
In the UK,
one in four children
live in poverty
Children on free school meals are
18 months behind
when they take their GCSEs
Children excluded from school are
four times more likely
to be from a poorer background
She made me believe that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
Our strategy to 2030
Our vision is for every child to fulfil their potential.
It starts with a great education.
Let’s make sure all children, no matter where they grow up, can be whoever they want to be.
