Education charity Teach First has announced that it will partner with seven universities to deliver its enhanced Leadership Development Programme (LDP) from 2017.
Business leaders have today challenged the Government to set out a plan to tackle educational inequality and help avert a shortage of millions of skilled workers.
Challenge the Impossible
In response to Save the Children’s Early Years campaign, James Westhead, Executive Director of Teach First said:
“High quality Early Years education is absolutely vital to close the attainment gap for the poorest children. As it stands, far too many children start school over a year behind academically. This is why we fully support the call for an Early Years teacher in every nursery. This will help to ensure all children, whatever their background, have the same chance to succeed”
