National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) are involved in every aspect of the work of the National Board, and NBPTS provides opportunities and support for NBCTs to help build the teaching profession, promote accomplished teaching, and share their expertise as teacher leaders. The NBCT Leadership Program helps foster the movement of National Board Certified Teachers into roles as professional experts, education leaders, entrepreneurs, education policymakers, and public opinion leaders in the education system.
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is leading the way in making teaching a profession dedicated to student learning and to upholding high standards for professional performance. We have raised the standards for teachers, strengthened their educational preparation through the standards, and created performance-based assessments that demonstrate accomplished application of the standards.
