All Washington State National Board candidates have access to cohort facilitators, who are experienced NBCTs that have received training through OSPI.

Universities, school districts, local educations associations, non-profits, and ESDs hire facilitators to support candidates through the certification process.

Facilitator Training

To ensure consistency across the state, facilitators are asked to participate in Facilitator Training prior to hosting a cohort group. Additionally, OSPI will only approve cohorts that are facilitated by trained National Board Cohort Trainers (NBCT). This two-day training hones facilitation knowledge and skills, provides a deeper understanding of the revised National Board process, as well as develops skills in working with adult learners. Typically, OSPI co-locates Facilitator Training with WEA Jump Start sessions during the summer. The cost for this training is approximately $60 per day.

Current Training Options

Facilitator Training for 2019 has ended, but you are welcome to reach out to OSPI if you have a need for cohort facilitation in your district. Please note that OSPI contracts with the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP) for our registration process.
