Teach First

 

Teach First SOAS aim to create a group of unified students who are motivated and take action to address educational disadvantage.

Our mission is to raise awareness of the problem of educational disadvantage amongst students through debates and campaigns run by the society. We also aim to organise and run fundraising activities and events to raise money and support the charity Teach First. We hope to identify opportunities where students can take action to address educational disadvantage. With support from Teach First, we hope to design new ways for students to make a positive impact on pupils in Teach First eligible schools in the local area. Lastly we understand the importance of networking, and will aim to network with other Teach First Inspire societies at universities throughout the UK, sharing ideas for the society in terms of events, fundraising and action, as well as sharing views and opinions on the issue.

Objectives:

- AWARENESS: To raise awareness of the problem of educational disadvantage amongst students through debates and campaigns run by the society.
