Your Leadership Development

Fellowship Experience

An Education Pioneers Fellowship is more than just a job. It's an experience that inspires and prepares you to solve problems from outside the classroom, so students and teachers can succeed inside the classroom.

LEARN: Your Professional Development

Go deep on foundational knowledge.

Being an effective education leader requires being conversant and credible in the matters that directly impact schools and communities. Through Fellowship programming, EP Fellows gain exposure to the issues, policies, and politics that are critical for a transformational career in education.

As a Fellow, you’ll join a local cohort for in-person and virtual professional development opportunities, and learn from your peers and from education leaders locally and nationwide. Summer track Fellows take part in programming throughout their summer experience, and career track Fellows join a cohort close to the start of their new roles. All programming lays the foundation for you to thrive in your placement organization and beyond.

Your programming will include:

Induction, introducing you to EP and our resources.

Workshops and Webinars, on topics like the opportunity gap, school systems, and change management.

Capstone, designed for reflection and launching your future.

During these sessions, you’ll hear directly from prominent education leaders who serve as guest speakers, dive into case studies, and put yourself in the shoes of critical stakeholders throughout the education sector. By the end of your programming, you’ll better understand what it takes to succeed as a leader in education, and be equipped to follow the education leadership career path you desire.
