Teach First

Teach First are a leading education charity, fighting to make education fair for every child. Sport develops so many of the transferable skills needed to become a great teacher and leader. That's why Teach First are looking for BUCS students to apply for their two-year graduate Training Programme, or their Taster Programmes for students in first and second year. Regularly voted one of the top graduate programs in the UK, Teach First is definitely a career with purpose and meaning. Make sure you chat to the Teach First team across the weekend to find out more about becoming a Teacher and win some epic prizes.
