TEACH FIRST LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (LDP)

The Teach First mission
Teach First have identified a link between low income and low academic attainment in the UK. They are working on tackling inequality in education by recruiting exceptional graduates who can bring about change and create a positive learning environment in challenging schools.
The LDP is a paid, intensive two-year graduate programme which combines training and qualifying as a teacher with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE). Your journey on the programme will begin with a 5-week summer institute, where you will build curriculum knowledge, gain an understanding of education theory and practice, and enhance your classroom management. Development continues throughout the programme through coaching, mentoring, business training and a range of networking and skills workshops. Candidates will get to spend time in schools working with pupils, teachers and members of the local community.
In year one you will receive the basic salary for an unqualified teacher, followed by the basic salary for a newly qualified teacher which ranges from £22-£27,500, dependent on the location, and there is opportunity to earn more if you take on management responsibilities.
Teach First are also partnered with a number of graduate recruiters (listed below). Teach First participants are able to intern with the partner organisations who recognise and acknowledge the valuable transferable skills gained by the LDP participants.
  • Accenture
  • PwC
  • Google
  • Royal Navy
Teach First participants can also defer entry for a permanent position with one of these partner organisations, whilst they complete the Teach First LDP. There is also the option for Teach First participants to be fast-tracked in these application processes. Teach First participants will also benefit from coaching from senior professionals and have access to leadership seminars.
If you are interested in applying to Teach First, Rare is able to provide support at every stage of the application process for Rare candidates – from reading draft application answers to offering mock assessment centres. Applications are currently open and Teach First are recruiting on a rolling basis, so early applications are advised.
If this sounds like something you would like to apply for, then we would really recommend you join Rare for expert advice and support with your Teach First application.
 
If you wish to apply to Rare, and in turn, Teach First then please email Gianina.graham@rarerecuritment.co.uk before submitting an application.
