FAQ

While CarolinaTIP does not replace the invaluable support a teacher receives from their school and district, the program does provide an added layer of support for novice teachers. Program support is anchored on the principle of offering teacher-focused support that is responsive to the individual needs of the teacher and targeted at increasing their hope, confidence, and capacity. Due to the program’s external, non-evaluative nature, CarolinaTIP is uniquely positioned to supplement the necessary, beneficial induction support offered by districts and schools.

In addition to coaching, sessions, and community, participating teachers are provided the opportunity to engage in personalized professional development through microcredentials. Program participants are also provided the opportunity to take a graduate course designed to help new teachers transform their classroom management, at no cost to the teacher.
