Teach First – What They Do

Teach First is a UK charity that provides an employment-based teaching training programme for applicants who are looking to achieve Qualified Teacher status. The charity pairs trainees with participating primary and secondary schools for the duration of the 2-year training programme before successful applicants are rewarded a PGCE and optional master’s degree. Crucially, eligible Teach First schools are those where more than half of the pupils come from the poorest 30% of families in the United Kingdom.


National Switchboard Number – 020 3862 8000

Call Teach First on their national switchboard number 020 3862 8000 to contact a charity ambassador with questions about your application to the teacher training programme. For instance, callers may be interested in asking whether their degree subject and grade classifications will make them eligible for the charity’s training course. Alternatively, you may wish to ask whether your A-Levels are also taken into account when being considered for the Teach First scheme. It is important to call the Teach First enquiries helpline if you are unsure of the application deadline as you will have to wait to until the following year get involved with the programme if you have missed the date.

If you have submitted your online application form and have passed the online tests then you may be invited to a Teach First assessment centre. However, if you are unable to attend a specific date then you can book yourself into a different centre or can use this number to withdraw your application entirely. Successful applicants can get in touch to ask for details about the salary they are expected to receive or the Teach First ‘community’ that can help place them in a role after completing the teacher training course.


Fundraising Enquiries – 020 3862 8000

You can also contact Teach First on their switchboard number 020 3862 8000 for over-the-phone advice when running your own fundraising event to support the charity. For instance, a Teach First ambassador can provide tips and ideas for fundraising events before detailing how to pay forward any collected donations. The events team can provide logistic support throughout the fundraising process or can inform you how to get involved in the ‘Run the River with Teach First’ challenge.
