    Teach First Employer Presentation

    If you want to make an impact, make one. Teach First.
    Just 24% of students receiving Free School Meals achieve 5 GCSEs A*-C. That doesn?t seem right to me? but it is. I?m sure you?d agree it?s unfair. Perhaps you?d agree it?s unacceptable?
    Teach First a charity working to end educational inequality. We believe inspirational teaching and leadership is key to helping every child succeed, regardless of their background.
    Come along to the Teach First Employer Presentation on Thursday 6th November 1pm-2pm in The Pitt Building and find out about our two-year Leadership Development Programme and excellent undergraduate opportunities. Make an impact and prepare yourself for a successful career in almost any industry.
    Change their lives. Change yours. Teach First.
    Please sign up under ?Events? at www.teachfirst.org.uk/graduates and feel free to contact Natalie at nmason@teachfirst.org.uk if you have any questions. I hope to see you there!
