Does TFA’s training model prepare corps members to teach?

Our training model is a continuum of support that begins with a rigorous summer training program and continues with extensive coaching, professional development, and other resources throughout the corps experience—and beyond.

Our accelerated pre-service training, paired with intensive ongoing support, is by no means the only approach to training teachers. However, a growing body of rigorous research shows that corps members are, on average, having a positive impact on student achievement.
