To successfully engage the full potential of your students – and to take advantage of the opportunities Teach First presents – you’ll need to be someone with bright ideas, strong communication skills and gritty determination.
You’ll combine a strong work ethic and self-discipline with warmth, empathy and humility. And you’ll have to be resilient - very resilient. A sense of humour will be useful too; if you aren’t able to see the funny side of some situations, it will seem like a very long two years.
More than anything else, you’ll believe that it’s unfair that a child’s success in life is determined by their parents’ income. We're looking for people who are committed to changing that with us.
