• Teach First strongly believes that all young people should develop the confidence, skills and resilience to achieve success within and beyond education. We will encourage our teachers and students to get involved with partners working to close the gap in Youth Social Action. For example we will partner with National Citizen Service and set a clear aspiration for our teachers and ambassadors to engage with NCS programmes as part of their leadership development from 2017. This will ensure more young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds benefit from the rich opportunities the programme provides.
