Professional Development

At KIPP, you never stop learning.

Continuous Learning at KIPP

Continuous learning is one of KIPP’s core values. We believe there’s always room to learn, grow, and improve at each stage of your career. KIPP fosters on-going growth and development through job-embedded coaching, school and region-wide professional development, and national leadership training through the KIPP School Leadership Programs (KSLP).

For KIPP Teachers

We believe that higher-performing schools are ones where the school leader is relentlessly focused on developing teacher instruction. KIPP teachers receive support to improve their craft and achieve educational excellence through individualized coaching and job-embedded training, instructional toolkits and curriculum implementation plans, and resources to share and collaborate with colleagues across the network.

KIPP NYC Leadership Coaching

For Current and Aspiring Leaders

Most leadership development at KIPP takes place on the job. We believe, and 30 years of research confirms, that the best way to develop leaders is 70% on-the-job learning, supported by 20% coaching, feedback, and mentoring and 10% formal training. At the national level, KIPP School Leadership Programs (KSLP) offers multiple cohort-based development programs, including the highly-selective Fisher Fellowship and Miles Family Fellowship.
