The NEI NEPP is a comprehensive, multi-faceted new teacher experience, designed to deliver the participant pedagogy and opportunity to collaborate and learn from teachers in the same or related areas.

Coursework is delivered through online courses that are delivered asynchronously, but which are taken by the new educator during a specific time.
