    Teach First Employer Presentation - 29th October, 1pm @ the Pitt Building

    Find out about the excellent opportunities offered by Teach First,
    including our Leadership Development Programme (LDP) ? a two-year
    commitment that combines teacher training and a fully-funded PGCE
    qualification with one-to-one leadership coaching. Learn how you?ll
    develop leadership qualities that can be applied to any working
    environment, no matter where your career takes you afterwards.

    In this presentation you?ll hear first-hand accounts of what teaching
    in a Teach First school is like, get details on how to apply for the
    LDP and our undergraduate opportunities, and gain an insight into the
    social injustice that exists in the UK - where the link between low
    family income and poor educational attainment is greater than in
    almost any other developed country.

    Drinks and nibbles will be available afterwards, with the opportunity
    to speak to members of our graduate recruitment team and to
    individuals who have already completed the LDP.

    It is essential that you register for the event in advance. You can do
