The Massachusetts Teachers Association is seeking a Director of Training and Professional Learning (TPL) who is a dynamic leader with a strong background in adult education and training focused especially on union skills, leadership development, professional development, and racial and social justice, along with demonstrated experience in event coordination and program evaluation. This position will report directly to the Executive Director-Treasurer.
The Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA) is a union of 110,000 public school and college educators dedicated to defending public education as a fundamental right, protecting union rights, and building a just society. The MTA works to advance the quality and equity of public education in Massachusetts by securing the working conditions and professional respect and autonomy of educators, which improves learning conditions for all students, advocating for full funding for public education, and participating in broad coalitions to improve the lives of our students and their families.
The MTA has been charting a new direction for the past several years to build power through rank and file organizing and leadership development in order to grow stronger than ever despite assaults on public sector unions, to assure that the contractual, legal and professional rights of MTA members are enforced, and to challenge education “reforms” which serve to privatize public education and have undermined educator professionalism and the student learning experience.
