At PwC we recognise that spending two years teaching at a school in challenging circumstances will prepare you for anything that a career with us could throw at you. We’re proud to have been a Teach First platinum partner since 2009, and offer deferred entry schemes, leadership programmes and summer internships for Teach First participants.

About Teach First

Teach First gives you a unique opportunity to transform the lives of young people.

The link between low family income and low educational attainment is greater in the UK than in almost any other developed country. Teach First believes that’s not right, not fair and can’t continue. As an independent charity and an increasingly powerful movement for social change, it works to drive up educational standards and raise aspirations in schools in challenging circumstances. Since 2002, Teach First have placed over 8,500 graduates in schools across England and Wales, and helped change the lives of thousands of young people.

Teach First’s two-year Leadership Development Programme harnesses the enthusiasm and drive of outstanding graduates and experienced professionals and equips them with the skills, experience and opportunities to become inspiring teachers and leaders in the classroom and beyond. There are huge benefits all round. Teach First and participating schools gain the enthusiasm and expertise of exceptionally skilled graduates. You’ll develop many of the skills you need to become a future leader at PwC.
