Russell Hobby, general secretary of union NAHT, is set to take over as chief executive at Teach First.
Hobby is set to take over the social mobility charity in September when chief executive and founder Brett Wigdortz stands down.
Wigdortz announced his departure from the organisation he set up 15 years ago in January.
However, he will remain Teach First’s honorary president.
Hobby commented: "Over the last 15 years I have watched the Teach First movement grow from a handful of raw recruits to the national scale and influence it has today," he said.
"Yet it has never lost its focus on young people, their enormous potential and the power of teachers and leaders to change lives.
"I’m looking forward to building on all that has been achieved.”
