Who are Teach First?
Teach First are a charity working to end educational inequality. We believe inspirational teaching and leadership is key to helping every child succeed, regardless of their background. Since 2002 over 7000 graduates have joined the Teach First Leadership Development Programme in schools across England and Wales and helped change the lives of thousands of young people in low income communities.
What is the Insight Programme?
Insight is an opportunity to experience a snapshot of our Leadership Development Programme (LDP), develop employability skills and inspire young people studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
This two-week residential programme is a paid opportunity. Participants will spend the first week in our London office, focusing on training and personal development. This will be preparation for the second week, where participants will be placed in one of our partner schools across England and Wales. The programme will give those taking part the opportunity not only to teach their own lesson, but to find out more about the problem of educational inequality first-hand.
