Teach First Training Programme

You choose

  1. Sell people stuff they don’t need?
  2. Give children chances they don’t have?


We need to unlock the potential in all our children – not just some. If we don’t, we fail the next generation.

We find and develop inspiring teachers and leaders who will make it happen through our two-year Training Programme.

Join our ten thousand strong network building a fair education for all. But apply fast – 85% of places have already gone for our 2020 programme.

You'll help the UK’s most disadvantaged children realise their potential – and discover your own.

You’ll also:

  • earn a full salary
  • receive world-class training, including a fully-funded Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) – worth up to double the credits of a PGCE
  • develop skills all employers are looking for
  • make lifelong friends and connections
  • experience real responsibility from day one

To be eligible to apply for our Training Programme, you need:

  • a 2:1 degree or above (2.2 degrees will also be considered)
  • Grade C (or equivalent) in GCSE maths and English (Grade C in one science subject is also required for primary teaching)

There’s no minimum UCAS points (or equivalent) benchmark, but check our website for full eligibility requirements.

Fine out more and apply.
