Have you considered National Board Certification?

JOIN US! Online NYSUT and NYSED Recognition Event for New NBCTs. April 11, 2024, 4-5 p.m.

NYSUT is pleased to support our members interested in pursuing National Board Certification. To provide greater equity and access, NYSUT is now working with new facilitator training materials developed and provided free of charge by the certifying organization - the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Because these NPBTS materials are the most current and most closely aligned training materials to support the National Board Program for our members, Jump Start materials will be retired from NYSUT PLF training and should no longer be used in New York.
