Trails Pathways Alliance

The Pathways Alliance is an uncommon coalition of leading organizations dedicated to supporting and implementing diverse and inclusive educator preparation pipelines, including teacher residency programs. Now more than ever, effective and affordable education preparation programs and pathways are essential for teachers, schools, and students. We're working together to make this possible.

The initial goals of the alliance are to 1) develop a common definition of a teacher residency, 2) launch a resource library with resources for planning, implementing and improving quality, sustainable educator preparation programs in the current climate, and 3) develop a reputation as the go-to alliance for SEA/LEA decision-makers and policymakers looking for guidance.

Launched in October 2021, The Pathways Alliance is co-led by InnovateEDU and The Learning Policy Institute and includes these founding partners:
