You need to be resilient - you're confronted with new situations all the time you never know what the next day will bring.

Recruitment & selection

To be successful in engaging 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, gritty determination, awesome communication skills and a desire to defy convention. 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 laugh at yourself, it will seem like a very long two years. In short, you’ll need to be someone special, and that’s just the beginning.
