About Teach First

Teach First is an increasingly influential education charity, engaging UK students and graduates  to fight a serious social problem – educational inequality.

Young people in low-income communities need leaders – exceptional people who can bring out the best in them. Teach First run a Leadership Development Programme (LDP) to build the next generation of leaders.  The two-year LDP combines teacher training and a fully-funded Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with one-to-one coaching, enabling students to develop personal and leadership qualities that they can take forward into any career.

Visit the Teach First website here to join thousands of others committed to ending educational inequality.
