Seeking passionate school leaders!

TNTP seeks a full-time Leadership Coach for our Philadelphia and Camden team. This position is based in the Philadelphia, PA region and is available immediately.

Who We Are
TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.

Across the country, we work to create effective leaders by recruiting and training new school leaders and developing current leaders through targeted professional development and one-on-one coaching. Our work, including PhillyPLUS and CamdenPLUS, provides the education sector the opportunity to learn more about how to effectively recruit, train, and support school leaders over time. In addition to PLUS programs, we partner with local Philadelphia charter and parochial schools and networks to provide instructional leadership development and support for their school leaders.

You’ll coach new and current school leaders to operationalize that vision by developing their instructional expertise, management and personal leadership skills to be successful.
