This study aims to explore the leadership of Teach First teachers in schools during their second year, in terms of both impact on leadership in and outside the classroom. Teach First is an alternative certification program in England based on Teach for America. A mixed methods approach, employing surveys of participants and headteachers, case studies of 16 participating schools and analysis of documentary evidence was used. It was found that Teach First teachers are making a strong contribution to informal leadership in their schools. They are seen as eager to take initiatives and as making a positive contribution to school culture. There are mixed views regarding their contribution to the formal leadership of their schools
