Graduate scheme

We’ve taken the unusual step of temporarily re-opening our recruitment window for our 2022 Training Programme. Why? Because our country needs brilliant teachers, now more than ever.

But right now there’s a critical shortage of incoming teachers in the UK, especially in disadvantaged communities.

So, to make sure all schools and pupils have access to the fantastic teaching staff they deserve, we’re re-opening applications for our 2022 Training Programme for a limited time.

Don’t wait to change your life, be the hero schools need this year.

This is your chance to change the future. Train to teach in 2022 with Teach First. Bring your passion, skills, experience and knowledge into the classroom this October and start changing lives – sooner rather than later.

Applications for our 2022 Training Programme are open, with training starting this autumn.

What’s in it for you?

How about being part of a scheme consistently ranked among the UK’s top graduate career options, earning a salary from day one in the classroom, ongoing support and an internationally recognised leadership qualification? Plus access to a 15,000-strong network of likeminded people and organisations who can help guide your career progression and build connections to last a lifetime.

You’ll also feel the satisfaction that comes with impacting the lives of children who might otherwise be left behind.

Don’t wait – start your journey today

You’ll get into the classroom quickly, so you can start making a difference right away where it matters most. And you can count on us to back you all the way with training, leadership development and unrivalled support.
