Is Now Teach for me?

You’ve worked hard and made a success of your career – but your job doesn’t grip you the way it once did. You dream of starting all over again and doing something new. You want to feel useful. You’re ready for the hardest thing you’ve ever done.

In its pilot year, Now Teach is looking for a group of experienced leaders from the private and public sectors to teach mainly maths, science and languages (French and Spanish) in challenging secondary schools in London. We will help you work out if this is for you, help you apply, and support you throughout your on-the-job training in a school.  As a Now Teach pioneer, you will start a movement, teach skills to the children who need them most, and put your leadership experience to the best possible use – in the classroom.

  • "Quitting banking for teaching takes a lot of guts - I was losing salary, status and friends. I made the change at 45, but now think I should have done it earlier. I've loved every minute of it"
