Strengthen your application by volunteering

Work with organisations that share our mission to boost your skills and chances of joining our programme.

 

Take a look at the volunteering opportunities available at organisations we work with below. Contact them directly to find out more, but make sure you mention that you heard about them through Teach First.

Many of the opportunities listed here have been established by Teach First ambassadors (alumni of our Leadership Development Programme) who have identified a problem in the education system and created a social enterprise to tackle it.

Please note that successfully working with these organisations will enhance your skills but does not guarantee a place on our programme.
