Teach First

About training provider

Teach First develop teachers and leaders who share a commitment to a fair education.

Teach First trainees teach subjects across Early Years, Primary and Secondary in schools throughout England and Wales.

Once they complete the first year on the programme, trainees will have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and be part way to the Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership. In their second year, the trainees become a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT), completing the final two modules of the PGDE.

Trainees who choose this route join a ten thousand strong network for professional support and guidance. They also gain a fully funded PGCE qualification worth two thirds of a Masters degree.

Teach First is the UK’s largest graduate recruiter, voted top 10 in The Times Top 100.
