Career Education Professional Development
NTI 2021 will be held at the Holiday Inn Select in Columbia, MO from August 1-4, 2021.
NEW for 2021: Participants will choose to attend NTI in-person or virtually. The same high-quality program will be provided in both formats. The virtual and in-person formats take place simultaneously August 1-4.
NTI is a four-day boot camp for new career and technical education teachers who are coming into teaching directly from industry. The purpose of NTI is to prepare novice teachers for their first day, week and month of school with an eye toward a successful first year. School district administrative approval is required for all participants. Eligible participants:
- do not have an education degree
- have never taught or have just finished their first year of teaching
- have been hired by a Missouri public school district
Applications are due July 1, 2021. Registration is subject to availability after July 1, 2021. A $25 nonrefundable deposit is required for all participants, and registration is considered complete once that deposit is received by the Department.
Schools may reserve spots for NTI by submitting an application that indicates the content and grade level the new teacher will be teaching. A $25 nonrefundable deposit is required to save a spot.
Are you, or do you know of, an experienced Career and Technical Education (CTE) teacher who would like to assist as a teacher leader for NTI 2021? This is a five-day commitment from July 31-August 4. A stipend is paid for teacher leaders and expenses are reimbursed at the state rate. Teacher leaders work with a cohort of 5-7 new teachers throughout NTI by facilitating training and assistance with both in-person and virtual participants. Training and materials are provided. Interested CTE teachers should complete the application by April 15th at https://modese.wufoo.com/forms/z1ml45ug1p67bu5/
