About National Board Certification2016-12-28T08:53:05+00:00

The mission of the National Board is to advance student learning and achievement by establishing the definitive standards and systems for certifying accomplished educators, providing programs and advocating policies that support excellence in teaching and leading and engaging National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) and leaders in that process.

The National Board seeks to elevate the status, voice and role of accomplished teachers in shaping a true profession. This includes

1) raising public awareness with respect to the cognitively complex, collaborative and expertise-driven nature of teachers' work;

2) setting higher standards for entry and advancement into the profession; and

3) recognizing accomplished teaching through a rigorous professional certification process comparable to those found in other premier professions, such as medicine, engineering and law.
