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.


What we do

New Teacher Center is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving student learning by guiding a new generation of educators. We have made it our mission to overcome challenges teachers and students face by providing all educators with the support and resources necessary to succeed from their first day to their last.

By working in conjunction with school districts, state policymakers and educators from across the country to increase the effectiveness of teachers and school leaders at all levels, NTC has developed a series of results-oriented programs that align with district learning goals and address teacher induction, instructional coaching and school leadership development. All of these programs take place on premises within local school environments.
