The NJTLC Program requires all candidates to complete a school-based “Teacher Leader Internship”, which includes multiple school-based clinical experiences, performance tasks, and a “Teacher Leadership Project” embedded throughout the program’s duration that are designed to provide opportunities for candidates to examine and apply teacher leadership practices.
The Teacher Leader Internship and all related clinical experiences, performance tasks and projects are:
- Facilitated by a trained school-based “SB Mentor” assigned to each candidate.
- Supported, extended and enhanced by required “Team Leadership Seminars” that are regularly scheduled for school-based SB-Mentors and teacher leader candidates
Two (2) Field-Based Observations are also conducted by the SB-Mentor during the Internship.
