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. TIPS are intended for use across a wide variety of program contexts, including consortia, small and large school districts, Pre-K–17 partnerships, and charter schools. The standards are carefully framed to support maximum impact on teaching and learning, regardless of context.
