The vision of the NC NTSP is to be a leader in university-based induction support through the belief in and practice of transformative, intentional coaching to increase student achievement by improving beginning teacher effectiveness and retention.
The mission of the NC NTSP is to support beginning teachers through consistent, individualized, in-the-moment coaching aligned to individualized growth and personalized professional development.
The NC NTSP is a comprehensive, university-based induction program offering a research-based curriculum and multiple services designed to increase teacher effectiveness, enhance skills, and reduce attrition among beginning teachers. The NC NTSP provides each teacher: (1) intensive Institute; (2) intensive, individualized classroom coaching; & (3) aligned professional development sessions. The goal of the North Carolina New Teacher Support Program (NC NTSP) is to improve student achievement by improving beginning teacher effectiveness and teacher retention.
Without my NC NTSP Coach this year, I would have left the teaching profession. At a time when too many teachers are leaving the field, this program is essential to help with teacher retention. I can’t sing the praises of the program & its Coaches enough. Any new teacher who participates in the NC NTSP is better able to become an excellent teacher & stay in the profession.”
