Celebrating eight years of partnership with Teach First, bringing emotional health to schools

Teacher I Want To Be - Teach First 2016
Teacher I Want To Be - Teach First 2016

We’re delighted to have worked with Teach First for the eighth year as they place their 10,000th teacher in one of many schools around the UK.

Family Links and the Nurturing Schools Network have worked with all Teach First primary participants since 2008, and for the first time this year also trained all 1,000 secondary participants. During our partnership with Teach First nearly 2,750 Teach First teachers have been trained to use Nurturing Programme strategies in their classrooms in order to build positive relationships.
