Teachers are leaders – they have to be.
Leading, engaging, motivating and inspiring 30 young people would be a test for any business, community or even military leader, yet teachers do it several times every day.
Developing leadership potential
Top recruiters look for leaders – people who have a track record of making things happen and a major feature of Teach First’s Leadership Development Programme is its focus on developing your leadership potential – it’s all in the name! It is through leadership that you will be able to profoundly affect the achievement of all your pupils, and your leadership abilities will make you stand out in your future career.
Teach First will draw out your leadership abilities as a communicator and an influencer in a way that no other graduate programme can. We will enable you to develop the knowledge, understanding, personal skills and strategies to unite and focus groups of individuals on subjects and tasks. You will learn to praise, guide, lead with authority, gain and maintain respect, and harness the abilities of disparate individuals to reach a common goal and achieve great results – whether that’s in a classroom setting with students or in an office with colleagues.
Masters in Education
Our Programme is Masters accredited and will put you well on the way to achieving a valuable Masters in educational leadership.
