We recruit from all over the world and place participants in teaching jobs with schools in England and Wales. Wherever you’re teaching, you’ll find that Teach First participants form close-knit supportive groups and enjoy rich and varied lives outside work. Many choose to live with fellow participants and during the summer you will be given valuable advice on finding affordable housing and how to connect with other participants seeking accommodation in each local area.
The map below gives an overview of our local areas.
You may have strong initial views about where you want to work and we will try to take these into account when placing you. During the application process you will be able to state your local area preference. However, our focus is on placing highly motivated individuals into teacher jobs where they are most needed. We recommend that you be open minded about local area and understand that we will prioritise the needs of the schools and their children over the preferences of our applicants.East of England
