The Institute for Recruitment of Teachers application is open, and we encourage you to share with your networks. This year our team traveled throughout the United States, stopping in California, New York, and Georgia to support our recruitment initiatives. Spearheaded by Monica’s recruitment efforts, our team’s collaboration with our consortium institutions planted the seed for our hopefully fruitful recruiting season. Our application is open until March 1st, so please spread the word!
The IRT Alumni Network is an online private network built exclusively for IRT alumni to connect with each other. If you’re an IRT alum looking to build your professional network, or become a mentor, or even just keep in touch with the IRT community – this is THE best place. The entire IRT team is thrilled to be able to offer a space where the global IRT community can stay connected with each other. As we continue to expand the IRT Alumni Network we hope it will be used as an invaluable resource.
