Resilience, potential and diversity 

We know that it’s not just about filling vacancies. Because you need teachers who understand the context of your school, get stuck in and make a lasting difference for your pupils. That’s where we come in:
  • We’ll help you recruit people with resilience, humility, energy and intellect 
  • You’ll benefit from our rigorous selection process: we only select applicants with the knowledge and spark that make them stand out  
  • We look for top qualifications but mostly focus on a candidate’s potential to learn and grow 
  • Our trainees come from diverse backgrounds: 30% attended schools in disadvantaged communities themselves. Schools just like yours
Applicants are really put through their paces to ensure that they have the commitment, skills and mindset required to succeed in their roles.

Outstanding training and support 

No other recruitment and training provider offers trainees such comprehensive support over two years. This includes an expert Teach First teacher educator and a university tutor. And we’ll train one of your team to be their mentor, with a mentoring grant up to £2,600. We’ll work with you every step of the way – developing your new trainee and supporting your school.
Our training uses best practice and research from across the globe, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Incoming trainees spend time in classrooms learning theory and practice before joining your school. They’ll then teach their own classes from September, developing on the job with our ongoing support.

We decided to recruit from Teach First because we’d heard about the high quality of candidates that they can offer to schools.

Developing your future leaders

Your trainee will gain qualified teacher status (QTS) and a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) by the end of year one. 83% of last year’s trainees continued to teach after completing our two-year Training Programme.

We’re here as a long-term partner for your school. We support teachers to progress, develop as leaders and continue to make a difference. Our trainees are seven times more likely to become senior leaders, but our leadership training is open to all teachers, not just those who trained with us.

By partnering with us, you'll join a network of local and national schools, to learn and share best practice together.

Partnering with Teach First is a long-term investment… it’s important to recruit quality people who possess the characteristics and skills to become the school leaders of the future
