Teach-First

 

A charity working for equality of education in England and Wales.

Our Founder and CEO, Brett Wigdortz, left the corporate world to set up a charity to improve education. He developed a business plan for Teach First after the McKinsey team he was part of had looked into how businesses could help improve secondary education in London and found that great teachers could raise pupils’ results by at least 40%. In July 2002, Teach First officially launched in Canary Wharf with a team of 11 employees led by Brett Wigdortz as CEO and Stephen O’Brien CBE & George Iacobescu CBE as co-chairs of the Board of Trustees. Canary Wharf Group and Citi become the first corporate supporters of Teach First.

All our work is aimed at improving education for young people from poorer backgrounds in five critical areas:

  • Literacy and numeracy in primary school
  • GCSE grades in secondary school
  • Developing skills that help them achieve high aspirations after school
  • Increasing the number going into further and higher education
  • Increasing the number graduating from top universities
