Empowering Educator Advancement via
We offer micro-credential-based advancement pathways for educators to meaningfully improve their instructional practice and accelerate their careers. We partner with states, universities, districts and schools to create planned educator advancement roadmaps based on a system’s uniquely identified needs and gaps. We help our partners to develop and retain demonstrably great educators, and help build educators’ capabilities to better serve students.
We also offer programs directly to teachers, including our National Board Pre-Candidacy Program and our Rank Advancement program for Kentucky educators.
Building Actionable Teacher Skills for COVID Recovery
As schools face unprecedented challenges resulting from the pandemic, teachers are asking for support in moving students forward. Our new foundational micro-endorsements can help:
- Foundations of Learning Recovery
- Foundations of Student Well-being
- Foundations of Attending to Equity
BloomBoard provides a completely different professional learning experience
Our micro-credentials are not time-based, seat-based, or measured by passing an exam. They are created by educators and rooted in research. Our innovative learn-by-doing process allows teachers to practice what they’re learning in their own classrooms and to demonstrate their abilities by submitting a portfolio of artifacts derived from their actual practice. Where other professional development programs leave off, we are just getting started!
Our micro-endorsements consist of multiple, individual micro-credentials representing a set of discrete skills needed for certification in a given topic. They are used by many states as official educator certifications.
