Studying at university? Just graduated? Want to find out more about Teach First opportunities? Come along to our online panel event.

Our challenge is to unlock the potential in all our children, not just some. Helping kids reach their potential requires excellent teachers and role models from all backgrounds. On our graduate Training Programme, we’ll support you to perform, grow and contribute with the confidence to be yourself.

By training over 1,600 teachers a year, Teach First will impact tens of thousands of students. As such, it’s extremely important that our organisation gets LGBT+ inclusion right. All pupils deserve a diverse education and we believe that education can help build a future where everyone is accepted and celebrated.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far while continuing to work to improve our diversity and inclusion. Teach First are committed to recruiting a diverse cohort of teachers that represent the communities in which we serve, but we still have a long way to go.

Join our panel event to hear our current trainees and ambassadors discuss the importance of an LGBT-inclusive environment and their personal experience of teaching on our graduate programme and their career since.

Please note, this webinar is specifically aimed at people who have graduated in 2021 or are still at university.

We have more tailored events for career changers - please check out our website for details https://www.teachfirst.org.uk/events. This panel will be discussing the importance of LGBT+ representation in the classroom but is open to anyone who wants to come along and learn more.
