Why a National Board Jump Start?

In a conversation with some seasoned NBCT candidate support group facilitators, the following question came up: "If you had the luxury of several days to work with National Board candidates before they started the certification process, what things do you think would be most helpful to them?" We think you'll like their answer.

Jump Start seminars are designed to provide National Board candidates with important information about the certification process, time to examine component and Assessment Center requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification - all in a supportive, constructive, and collegiate environment.

What is National Board Jump Start?

Jump Start is an intensive summer seminar geared for teachers pursuing National Board Certification, designed by trainers who have worked with thousands of candidates.

This workshop is for candidates who plan to submit any components of National Board Certification in the 2017-2018 school year. Find out more at www.boardcertifiedteachers.org.

This workshop prepares you for the process and assists you in beginning your entries. During the workshop, you will learn techniques that result in better components and how to organize your resources and time to be most efficient. Bring your standards, portfolio instructions, laptop computer and personal calendar with you. Members can attend all three days, get two hot lunches and two hotel nights (double occupancy) for just $136.
