Intensive classroom practice
Our training is radically simple: focused practice on key skills to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on skill-building, our innovative training is centered around actual teaching experience and focused practice on core skills, such as creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly. With hands-on training and expert coaching from experienced teachers, our teachers develop the skills to hit the ground running on day one and continue improving for years to come.
Certification that counts
TNTP Academy holds the highest standards of any training program in America. We believe teaching is a priviledge, and we award certification only to new teachers who demonstrate a consistent ability to help their students learn and thrive. By setting a high bar and supporting rapid growth, we ensure that all new teachers enter the classroom ready to make a lifetime of difference for the students who need them most.
Real results for students
TNTP Academy teachers are getting results. For four straight years, a state-sponsored study of teacher-preparation pathways in Louisiana (the longest-running TNTP Academy program) has found that TNTP-trained teachers outperform even experienced teachers in raising student achievement in core content areas including math, science and English language arts. As The New York Times editorialized, “The findings suggest that high-quality programs like… TNTP have a big role to play in the effort to improve teacher preparation nationally.”
