About the Careers Leader Programme

Welcome to Teach First’s Careers Leader Programme (CLP). 

This is a year-long programme of six modules, following this introductory Module 0, which uses the Gatsby Benchmarks to empower you, as a Careers Leader, to deliver change in your school.  

The programme follows a blended approach that includes: 

  • Online content and activities  
  • In person Training Days
  • Three in-school meetings with your Teach First Lead

 By the end of the school year, you will have developed, tested and written a whole-school careers strategy to implement in your school. 

About This Module

Module 0 is the opening module and welcomes you to the programme, outlining the journey ahead for both you and your school.  

In Module 0, you will: 

  • Establish your starting point 
  • Identify priority areas for your school, and for you as Careers Leader, to develop over the course of the programme 
  • Introduce activities to prepare your next one-to-one meeting with your Teach First Lead which will take place in September 

It should take you around 3 hours to complete this module. 


Start date: 8th July 2019
