How It Works

The First Give programme is designed to be delivered with a full year group (either Year 7, 8, 9 or 10) across a chosen curriculum area, within a chosen term. We support our partner schools to choose the most convenient way to deliver the scheme of work, whether that is through weekly lessons or drop down days. The programme is flexible to the needs of your school’s timetable and we work with each partner school to ensure it works for you.

School Benefits

The First Give programme offers many benefits to our partner schools including a fully prepared and resourced scheme of work; ready for teachers to deliver. However we know that the programme also helps to create and embed stronger links between schools and their local communities.

Becoming a First Give partner school is so much more than solely delivering the First Give Programme.
