Seeking Passionate Leaders!
TNTP seeks a full-time Partner for the New Teacher Effectiveness group. This position will be based in Brooklyn, NY and is available immediately. Frequent travel (up to 40%) is required.
Who We Are
TNTP is a national non-profit that has reimagined teaching. We believe great teaching is transformative and that teachers, more than any other factor in education, have the greatest impact on whether or not a student will succeed in school. We were founded by teachers and they are at the center of everything we do. Our mission is to end educational inequality by providing excellent teachers to students who need them most and by advancing policies and practices that ensure effective teaching happens in every classroom.
The New Teacher Effectiveness Group is a leading provider of talented new teachers. TNTP's rigorous training program – beginning with intensive pre-service training and culminating in state certification – prepares people without formal education backgrounds to be effective in challenging school environments. At every step, TNTP ensures that only teachers who prove their ability to raise student achievement enter and remain in the classroom.
Who We Want
We are looking for amazing people who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, are inspired by our mission and are highly motivated to change children's lives through education. If you've been pegged as a problem solver, complimented for your communication skills, and proven you thrive in a fast-paced environment, you'll be right at home here. We're looking for talented people who learn from failure and overcome adversity, cultivate strong relationships, and push themselves, their work and the people around them to the next level.
As a Partner, you will be responsible for leading NYC Teaching Fellows and other TNTP teams to find and train the most effective new teachers in the country. This leadership position will push you to transform TNTP's vision into action, manage large teams to meet ambitious goals and nurture relationships with leaders in districts and states across the country, including the New York City Department of Education. We expect the Partner to:
- Be an innovative strategist. You're a strategy setter who can generate solutions to thorny challenges, but you also know when to call it. If something's not working you are the first to advocate for a new approach.
- Develop talent. One of your greatest responsibilities and privileges will be to manage and develop TNTP's amazing people. You understand how to build a strong team, maximize each individual's strengths, and are skilled at leading teams through change.
- Inspire others to act. You have a knack for engaging and motivating clients and business partners at all levels.
- Have a distinguished track record. You've been setting and achieving ambitious goals throughout your career.
