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 Manager (PDM) is accountable for excellence participant outcomes in a specific local area. The PDM leads on all local participant impact activity through the line management of approximately fifteen Participant Development Leads (PDLs) whose delivery constitutes a significant factor in the successful delivery of the new Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and broader delivery of the Teach First Leadership Development Programme.
