Teach First is the largest teacher training and leadership programme in the country. We seek to unlock the potential of all students, not just some. To do that, Teach First trains and supports talented professionals to become outstanding teachers from a variety of backgrounds.
Over the past fifteen years we’ve placed over 10,000 teachers in low-income areas, supporting over one million students. We work with schools in every region of England and in Wales, helping them make a difference where it’s needed most. 63% of our former trainees who still teach work in schools in low-income areas. 56 are now headteachers, 402 are senior leaders, and 1,547 are middle leaders.
We’re looking for medics and medical students to make the switch into full-time teaching. Medics have so much to offer in the field of education. Their advanced training in STEM subjects makes them a natural fit in the classroom at a time when schools often struggle to recruit in these areas.
Also, doctors’ natural inclination to enquire, listen and support people in need aligns perfectly with the supportive nature of teaching. We’ll help you develop into an inspiring teacher and provide support every step of the way so that you can make an impact where you’re needed most.
We are seeking individuals who are passionate about education and committed to making a difference in young lives. Throughout the selection process, we look for the key competencies that make a great teacher and which are all listed on our website here.
Our academic requirements include a minimum 2.1 bachelor’s degree with honours (although some 2.2s will be considered) as well as various curriculum requirements.
Teach First has opportunities available for medics across the UK: London, South East, East of England, South West, West Midlands, East Midlands, North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humber
