Do I have to be a teacher to be a trainer?
No. You don’t have to be a current teacher to be a Time To Teach trainer. However, your audience is teachers and you will be working within schools. Most trainers have spent time as an educator in a K-12 school, university, technical college, preschool, youth camp, or church groups and understand the needs of schools.

How do our trainers earn at the top of the industry?
Our highly successful curriculum and nationally acclaimed presentation are the reasons why schools invite us to train in their building. We make a difference, we have an immediate impact on improving the school culture, teacher job satisfaction, student performance, and a myriad of other variables that schools not only want but ask for. We are busy because we are effective. That is why we are seeking excellent trainers.
top

Can I continue teaching while training with the Center for Teacher Effectiveness?
Yes. We hope you do. Most of our trainers are “active duty” teachers and administrators. Your participants will relate to you because you are in the trenches too. It is not uncommon for many of our trainers to make more in one day training, than in one month of teaching.
top

What does it mean to be an independent contractor?
Everyone who works for the Center for Teacher Effectiveness is an independent contractor. You are not considered an employee, franchisee, partner, or joint venturer. You are responsible for reporting all of your taxable income to the IRS (we will provide a 1099 form). This is your own small business and you have an unlimited earning potential.
top

Is this a multilevel company (MLM)?
No! Our organization structure is similar to other respected companies. We have small group of corporate Executives and a larger group of National Directors who are excellent teachers and who are also phenomenal trainers. These National Directors mentor and help our Associate trainers (you). That is the organization, there are no levels below you. It is impossible to find and place other trainers “under” you who in turn find trainers who find trainers, etc…. The training money doesn’t trickle “upward” in our company, as it does in MLM organizations. We share a majority of the earnings with our Associates. Why should the revenue you earn trickle upward to hundreds of people who you don’t even know?
top

Do I have to stay all day on Sunday, the last day of the training?
Yes. The Sunday training schedule is 8:00am – 3:00pm and material is presented all day long. We understand that you may have to leave early for travel reasons, but if you do, you will miss some information. However, we offer online over 100 hours of videos, webinars, and documents which will help you get started.
top

Are there territories for training?
No. You can train anywhere in the country, except the following states: New Mexico, Pennsylvania.
top

Will there be competition among other trainers for schools?
No. Time to Teach has only penetrated approximately 1% of the professional development training market. Time to Teach has a major impact on improving school climate, improving teaching and learning, increasing staff morale, decreasing office referrals and dropout rates and increasing tests scores. Because of this we are seeking highly talented teachers to help us keep up with the ever growing training demand
top

Does the Center for Teacher Effectiveness find my school trainings?
We spend two full days at the Train The Trainer answering this question. We teach you a number of successful strategies that will directly lead to principals inviting you to train in their schools. We give you the tools and the strategies and you use them to become a successful trainer. We want all of our trainers to have flexible schedules and the opportunity to train as much or as little as they wish
top

A school is interested in me, what do I do now?
Every one of our trainers is assigned to a National Director who has a great deal of experience teaching and who has earned superior marks for presenting around the United States. Your director will work with you every step of the way, writing contracts, negotiating, and closing the deal. These are savvy business people. All you have to do is show up and present well.
top

How do I get paid?
Schools pay the Center for Teacher Effectiveness for the training provided. We in turn pay our trainers every Friday. You will be paid directly from the Center for Teacher Effectiveness.
top

Are there any hidden fees after paying my tuition for the Train-The-Trainer seminar?
No. Your tuition covers the 4 full days of training, working lunch or continental breakfast, books, materials, online resources and we will have a staff of National Directors and trainers to answer all your questions and concerns.
top

What does it take to be a successful trainer?
Professionalism, we want you to be that professional that everyone admires. Passion, you must have a desire to help students and teacher succeed and thrive together. Personality, you’ve got to be able to deliver the message and connect with your audience
top

How much is tuition for the Time To Teach training?
$675.00.
top

Do you offer any assistance if I can’t afford the training?
We give you a proven process to follow. You do all of the work. In just two hours, one Associate recently found sponsors to cover her training fee and all travel and lodging expenses. You are fully responsible for the $675.00 training fee, but you may use the Sponsorship Program strategies to attempt to offset that fee, as well as your travel and lodging expenses! If you are a talented teacher, we want you at our training. The Sponsor Program offers you the opportunity to gather a team of sponsors to help you fund the training. But, reiterating, you have to do the work.
top

Do I pay my own travel and hotel expenses to attend a training?
Yes. You pay all travel and hotel expenses. Remember the Sponsor Program can earn enough to pay for these expenses in addition to the tuition.
top

I know someone who might be interested, who do I contact?
Have them visit this website, view the webinar, read the Call for Trainer document and contact us immediately. By now, you know the caliber of the professional that we are seeking, so please make sure that anybody that you refer meets our high qualifications.

top

What happens after I have an interview?
If you meet our high qualifications, your director will have corporate send you the Time to Teach password to access the Candidate Agreement. Corporate will then send you the Time to Teach book, a training agenda, travel tips, and an associate travel blog to help you share expenses with other trainers. We know how to save money traveling because we train and travel all over the United States
top

When is tuition due?
Tuition is due before the training begins
top

Will I be a certified Time to Teach trainer at the end of the 4 day training?
Yes. The director you have been working with is a seasoned and highly acclaimed presenter. They know the caliber of the trainer we are seeking. If your director invites you to a training after an interview, and you complete the training, then you are a certified Time to Teach trainer. You will always remain a certified trainer so long as you keep your professionalism, personality and passion at the high levels that schools and children deserve.
