Once again the Institute for Learning Partnership at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is offering a FREE support program to candidates seeking National Board Certification. Monthly workshops, taught by National Board certified teachers, will help candidates prepare for the National Board Certification Examination, (which is administered) by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

The workshops will begin on Sept. 16 and be held on Fridays, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. on the UW-Green Bay campus.

This program is partially funded by a WEAC grant.

What are some of the potential benefits of National Board Certification?
