Become a Coach with Teach First

Applications for the 2019 Coaching programme with Teach First are now open! You can join the team of over 75 DHL colleagues nationwide who have supported newly qualified teachers be the best they can be in the classroom.

As a Coach you will be helping a newly qualified teacher to:

  • be the best they can be in the classroom
  • develop as a leader
  • overcome challenges

We are looking for DHL colleagues, just like Lee, who want to develop themselves and are committed to helping others:

What is involved?

  • There are training events taking place nationwide between April and June 2019

Apply now!

There are Coaching training events taking place all across the UK – the dates and locations are below. Please note, you are likely to be matched with a teacher as part of this event so I recommend attending a training event in an area local to where you live or work.
