Since 2000, TNTP has proven that it’s possible to attract and train talented new teachers for hard-to-staff schools and subject areas. In 2011, TNTP’s 18 Teaching Fellows programs drew more than 33,000 applicants nationwide and accepted just 9 percent, comparable in selectivity to top U.S. universities.
Train Great Teachers
TNTP grows great teachers. TNTP's rigorous Teaching Fellows and TNTP Academy programs prepare people without formal education backgrounds to be effective in challenging school environments. At every step, TNTP helps teachers continuously improve and ensures that only teachers who prove their ability to raise student achievement enter and remain in the classroom.
Approved to train and certify new teachers in seven states and D.C., TNTP Academy prepares exceptionally effective teachers through classroom-centered training, led by master educators. Research shows that TNTP Academy-trained teachers in Louisiana outperform even experienced teachers in raising student achievement in several core subjects.
All teachers deserve great feedback. TNTP's online program - Great Teaching, Great Feedback - gives teachers individual support to take their teaching to the next level. In its first year, 4 in 5 teachers said the personalized feedback was useful.
