Since placing our first cohort in London in 2003, we have recruited nearly 7,000 teachers and now partner with schools serving low-income communities in every region of England and in Wales. These teachers have now taught more than 1 million pupils in low income communities across the breadth of England and Wales.
Last year 99% of our teachers completing their first year achieved 'outstanding' or 'good' in their qualified teacher status grade.
“One of [Teach First’s] biggest contributions has been to detoxify teaching for Britain’s most talented graduates… Ten years ago relatively few high-achieving graduates sought out careers in teaching. Now they are fighting to get onto Teach First and other routes.”
