Teach First: Giving millions of children a great education

The IMPACT Partnership is flourishing and has involved hundreds of our people since we set it up in 2014. We support Teach First in various ways. We coach teachers to help develop their innovation and leadership skills. We host ‘skills schools’ in our offices for students from low socio-economic backgrounds where we provide CV and assessment centre training.

PA retirees are also involved, mentoring Teach First’s Innovation Award Winners: five entrepreneurs starting up social enterprises to make a difference to equality in education. We also provide pro bono consulting advice so Teach First can make sure the organisation is in the best possible shape to achieve its mission. Our business design experts have reviewed Teach First’s operating model and are helping implement a new one. In 2016 we will carry out a procurement review, with the potential to release significant savings. This kind of support will help Teach First to remain a vital force in the drive to give all UK children the high-quality education they deserve.

“Our partnership with PA has gone from strength to strength, not only providing Teach First with crucial consultancy expertise relating to our organisational structure but also invaluable support and guidance to our teachers. With PA’s support, we are reaching more pupils in low-income communities across the UK and ensuring that all children are able to unlock the benefits that a high-quality education can bring.”

Brett Wigdortz, OBE, Founder and CEO, Teach First
