Welcome to our Newest Instructor Trainers!

Fourteen new Carpentries Instructor Trainers badged!

We are excited to announce that our most recent cohort of Instructor Trainers have completed their onboarding and received their badges!

Our Instructor Trainer Training program is still actively under development as we look to expand our capacity in the coming years. Huge thanks to these participants not only for their enthusiastic contributions to our discussion meetings, but also for their contributions to the continuing development of this training. We expect our curriculum for this program to be prepared for broader application in time for our next cohort.
