Why Teach Computing?
Thanks to our partnership with Teach First, we've been able to support the recruitment of more Computing teachers to its Training Programme than ever before. As a Computing trainee, you’ll have access to bespoke support and experiences offered by Amazon. Having more Computing teachers in schools serving disadvantaged communities means that more children facing the biggest challenges in life can learn crucial tech skills.
Careers Leaders is a programme run by the charity which supports leaders in schools to develop a long-term school-wide careers strategy to improve students’ opportunities. Over the course of an academic year, Teach First works with a school leader with responsibility for careers to develop and implement a whole-school careers strategy.
To ensure every young person gets access to the bright future they deserve, we aresupporting the development of 200 Careers Leaders across 2019-21. After two years of running Amazon Future Engineer in the UK, this investment in teachers is expected to benefit 50,000 secondary school students.
