There are nationally 3,704 Teach First participants who started since 2009/10 and are still teaching in schools today. This includes 1,338 who have completed the programme and 2,366 currently training in England.

Teach First started placing trainees in Hull in 2011. Since then 28 trainees have completed the programme in the Kingston upon Hull local area. 19 of those teachers are still teaching, with 13 still in Kingston upon Hull local authority.

Nationally, 1,387 participants started the Teach First programme in June 2014.
