Guest Blog Drop! Fully Funded, Paid Route into Teaching with Teach First
Teach First is a charity that works with like-minded people and organisations towards a day where every child has the education they are entitled to. On the two-year Leadership Development Programme (LDP) they train people with leadership potential to be inspirational teachers in schools in low-income communities across the country.
Since 2002, thousands of graduates have joined the LDP in schools across England and Wales and helped change the lives of more than a million young people in low-income communities. Teach First strongly believe that your background shouldn’t dictate your destiny and that everyone should have an equal chance to succeed.
The LDP offers:
- A fully-funded and salaried route into teaching, including an internationally recognised Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Leadership (PGDE), worth double the credits of a PGCE.
- Classroom-based training, allowing you to take real responsibility from the outset.
- Unparalleled career support during and after the programme, which enables you to progress quickly in school leadership, education policy, social enterprise and other fields.
If, like Teach First, you believe that every child should have the potential to achieve their dream then open an application to join the LDP today. Subjects and locations for the 2018 cohort are filling fast so open an application as soon as possible.
