On Behalf of the Children’s Commissioner

Be part of the largest ever survey of young people in England

Get your child’s voice heard and make a difference

The Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza, is launching a once-in-a-generation review of children’s lives.  

It’s called ‘The Childhood Commission’ and it will identify the barriers preventing children reaching their full potential and propose policy solutions to address them.

At its heart is ‘The Big Ask’ – the largest ever consultation held with children. In this survey the Children’s Commissioner is asking children and young people what they think is important for their future and what is holding young people back. The Children’s Commissioner will use what children and young people tell her to show the Government what they think and what they need to live happier lives.  

It’s an exciting opportunity to help us think big and it’s a chance for every child in England to have their voice heard. For more information, age group survey links, resources and more click below

HEP Subject Leaders – Primary Deep Dive Session 3: Writing a Rigorous & Robust Subject Self-Evaluation Report

On Behalf of Teach First

Teach First offers opportunities to primary and secondary schools

At Teach First, our mission is to build a fair education for all. Our training programme finds and develops trainee teachers from diverse backgrounds who can unlock the potential in your pupils. We work with schools that teach a high number of pupils from low-income backgrounds, and we’re looking for new partner schools for September 2021. We would love you to join us!

Why hire Teach First teachers?

  • It is tough to get on to our Training Programme. Our trainee teachers have been through a rigorous selection process. As well as the academic skills, our diverse cohort of trainees will have demonstrated they have the potential to become an outstanding teacher, with the enthusiasm, resilience and resourcefulness to succeed.


  • We match each teacher with a school where they work for a minimum of two years. Our participants achieve Qualified Teacher Status in Year 1, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education by the end of Year 2. Throughout this time, they have access to a range of training and development across to help them become excellent teachers. Click on the link to find out more about our
    Primary & EY and Secondary programmes


  • Our teachers fill a vacancy in your school from day one, working as part of your team, with an emphasis on raising the attainment and aspirations of the children in their class. Training is delivered through an intensive five-week Virtual Summer Institute and then continues in your school in partnership with Teach First. We have a specific programme for those teaching in Early Years.


  • In 2019, 83% of our teachers remained in teaching after the two-year Training Programme and after three years our teachers are twice as likely to be teaching in low-income areas as those from other training routes. We support teachers to stay in the teaching profession by working closely with Teach First Ambassadors beyond the end of the Training Programme.  

If you are interested in hearing more about how Teach First can work with your school, please get in touch with School Partnerships Manager, Hannah Dunhill.
