Teach First

Summer Projects

Summer Projects are 1-3 week mini-internships our community of talented leaders undertake during August in schools, charities, social enterprises and corporate organisations. 

"Since 2007 Accenture have offered over 120 Summer Projects to Teach First participants and we have seen the conversion to full-time graduate positions remain consistently high. There is a strong desire for Teach First ambassadors within Accenture as they are able to combine strong communication and leadership skills with the drive and determination to succeed for our clients. We are proud to work together to support the Teach First mission."  

Karen Goodacre, Head of Graduate Recruitment UKI, Accenture

Teach First participants and ambassadors provide a unique additional resource for your organisation. Having been successful in our rigorous selection process, and as part of the intensive Teach First Leadership Development Programme (LDP), these talented individuals have combined working, training and qualifying as a teacher with leadership training, coaching and mentoring.

Offering a Summer Project gives you access to a unique pool of talent, as well as an opportunity to contribute towards our vision.
