Changing the face of teaching

Goodman Masson are proud to be supporting Now Teach. 

Lucy Kellaway, a pioneer in her field, left her role as an FT Columnist to train as a Teacher. Lucy then set up NowTeach in 2016 to support people who have already had one successful career to retrain as teachers. Her aim is to start a movement of Senior Professionals redeploying their skills in the classroom and teaching the children who need it the most.

Now Teach can be part of the solution of the current teacher recruitment crisis. Bringing older people into the classrooms, brings wisdom, experience of the world and careers advice to the children. 

Below you can take a look at case studies, the Now Teach Brochure and visit their website for more information.

Now Teach believe that bringing different generations together for the mutual benefit of both will play a role in eradicating inequality in education - something that we are more than happy to get behind!
