An evening with Teach First: Diversity in education panelBy Teach First
In your final year of university or just graduated? Join our webinar to discuss the importance of BAME teachers in the classroom.
Our challenge is to unlock the potential in all our children, not just some. Together we’re working to create a culture where everyone, from any background, can do their best work. On our graduate training programme, we’ll support you to perform, grow and contribute with the confidence to be yourself.
There is a significant underrepresentation of ethnic minority teachers in the classroom, and this absence is even more stark in school leadership positions. Every young person should have an education that acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of people from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities. We believe every young person should also understand the roots of oppression and how these remain entangled in our society and systems today.
We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far but we know there’s a long way to go. Teach First are committed to recruiting a diverse cohort of teachers that represent the communities in which we serve and continuing to advocate for all pupils to have an education enriched by diversity.
Join our panel event to hear from of our current trainees and ambassadors about their personal experience of teaching on our graduate programme and their career since.
Please note, this webinar is specifically aimed at people who have graduated in 2020 or are still at university.
