Following a public procurement process, The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) has appointed Teach First as national provider to deliver an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) and Leadership Development Programme (LDP) for high potential graduates. This aims to raise levels of pupil attainment in England’s challenging schools by helping supply them with excellent teachers. Teach First, registered charity No 1098294, now seeks to secure an ITT Provider for each of its Local Areas to provide Initial Teacher Training and associated services as part of the Teach First Leadership Development Programme (LDP).

NOTE: Teach First also leads a programme in Wales “Teach First Cymru”, with support from the Welsh Government. This Invitation to Bid (ITB) does not include this programme and is for England only. Each year, Teach First recruits a cohort of participants for a Summer Institute and readiness to start teaching in school. ITT and the LDP lasts until the end of the second year for that cohort.
