Participant Development Lead - Primary

West Midlands
The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education. This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It’s a cycle that we’re determined to break.

The Participant Development Lead (PDL) is accountable for ensuring Teach First participants (trainee teachers) complete the Teach First Leadership Development Programme (LDP) and develop into leaders and meet Teach First’s pupil impact targets in their classrooms. They will orchestrate all aspects of support provided to participants including university tutors and school-based mentors to ensure participants complete the programme as engaged ambassadors (alumni of the Teach First programme).


The role will require some travel to schools across part of the region (depending on your allocated portfolio of participants) and we also have an agile working policy which supports some opportunities to work from home.

You will have QTS with experience of working in a leadership capacity within a school environment, along with experience of teaching in a range of institutions across England with a focus on those serving low-income communities. In addition, you will need a minimum of two years’ teacher training or development experience: developing, mentoring and coaching inexperienced teachers within a training route (for example PGCE, SCITT, Schools Direct, Teach First) and evidence of delivering great outcomes through coaching and mentoring.

The day when no child’s future is limited by their background is coming, yet, there is still more to be done. Join us and help us ensure every child in the UK has a fair shot at their ambitions.
