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
so here:

This is an invitation to join the Participant Panel of the Cambridge Laboratory for Research into Autism (CLaRA) and the Visual Cognition Lab at the Department of Psychology.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with active research at the University. We would not be able to conduct our research without the time kindly given by volunteers and as a consequence we are always looking for participants to take part in Psychology studies throughout the year. By completing the short questionnaire you will have the opportunity (though not any obligation) to participate in research studies when there is one suitable. We are looking for participants of all types to take part; you do not need to fit any criteria other than being fluent in English and 18+ years of age. As a thank you, for each study you would be offered cash payment for your time.

By following the link below you will be provided with more information about the type of studies that we run, as well as being able to take part in the Participant Panel. If you've taken part in the Participant Panel in previous years, please still complete the questionnaire in order to be invited to studies running this year.
