Fulfill the promise
20 years of empowering educators for student success
New Teacher Center Program Standards
Thank you so much for your interest in our 2018 Teacher Induction Program Standards. Over the last 20 years, New Teacher Center (NTC) has worked with state agencies, school districts, policy-making organizations, and a range of educational institutions to define the characteristics and fundamental elements of high-quality induction programs that accelerate the development of new teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, strengthen teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.
NTC’s Teacher Induction Program Standards (TIPS) build upon and are informed by those many years of study, consultation, collaboration, and program implementation across many contexts throughout the United States and abroad.
