Make a difference for schoolchildren

People always remember great teachers. Now you can be one of those people making a difference for schoolchildren in Norway. We’re looking for creative, innovative and socially aware young leaders who want to start their careers teaching science subjects to schoolchildren.

Teach First Norway is a two-year development programme for newly-educated talents holding a science degree. The programme was established in 2009 as a partnership between Oslo Education Agency, the University of Oslo and Equinor.

Our society is facing great challenges within science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Teach First Norway will meet these challenges by working with talented M.Sc. graduates to become effective and inspiring teachers and leaders. Teach First candidates will be teaching STEM subjects at selected schools in Oslo. At the same time, you will receive formal teaching education (PPU) and leadership training.

(Norwegian language qualifications required)

Investing in our future

At Equinor, we’re all about increasing interest in STEM subjects, so that more young people choose this branch of study later in life. Through our partnerships with Oslo Education Agency and the University of Oslo, we contribute to educate and develop courageous, confident and inspiring STEM teachers – because we believe in good role models and teachers to stir up interest in STEM amongst young people.

The Teach First Norway programme recruits new candidates every autumn from Equinor’s career pages. Please note that Norwegian language qualifications are required to be considered as candidate.

Oslo Education Agency is responsible for the programme, and all candidates are employed by Oslo municipality.

Finding tomorrow's heroes, today

Since 2006, Equinor has supported talent development within sports, culture and education under the programme Heroes of Tomorrow. For years, we have been cheering on young people with the passion, will and capability to perform beyond the ordinary – on football fields, skiing arenas and cultural stages. With the energy challenges we continue to face, now and in the future, it is just as important to cheer on talents found in classrooms and study halls.

More than ever, we need bright minds who dare to think bigger, smarter and more innovatively about the future. We need to give the heroes of tomorrow the opportunity to learn and discover that math, science and technology forms the basis for solving many of the exciting challenges ahead of us.
