Chris Bates, Teach First

“Applicants who have been City Year volunteers often demonstrate a real connection to our values and to our goal of boosting the achievement and aspirations of children from low-income backgrounds. In addition, they often have a broad range of transferable skills, and their time in the classroom can build their resilience, their ability to empathise and their leadership skills, as well as their ability to demonstrate many more of the competencies and values we look for in candidates for both our undergraduate and graduate programmes.

We are proud of our continuing relationship with City Year UK.”
