Professional Development Consultant (Part-time trainer) Remote (United States Only)

NoRedInk - Remote - Part time

Teaching kids to think critically and communicate effectively has never been more important, and NoRedInk helps students become better writers in more than 60% of middle and high schools in the U.S. To advance our mission of helping all students harness the power of the written word, we are looking for talented Professional Development Consultants (PDC) to help teachers using NoRedInk become more effective writing instructors.

Are you a retired educator or educator transitioning out of, or taking a break from, the classroom? This could be an excellent opportunity! In this role you will work as a part-time contractor, delivering professional development sessions to NoRedInk customers, virtually and onsite. Successful candidates should be passionate about utilizing their expertise and experience teaching English Language Arts to help teachers more effectively incorporate NoRedInk into their ELA instruction.

Professional Development Consultants must be able to participate in, and successfully complete, forty (40) hours of onboarding within 4-weeks, starting on May 6th, to become certified to conduct sessions. Onboarding is both asynchronous courses and live virtual meetings. After onboarding, the minimum hours required to be a PDC is ~10 hours per week, with most sessions being scheduled during school hours, or immediately after a typical school day. Candidates must be located within the continental United States and we are prioritizing the following states based on our needs: California, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

This position requires reliable internet that can support video calls and a quiet, professional place to deliver sessions. PDC’s must have their own equipment necessary to deliver sessions remotely.

As a Professional Development Consultant you will:

  • Become an expert in NoRedInk and our professional development service offerings, utilizing your ELA domain expertise to help teachers incorporate NoRedInk into their literacy instruction
  • Facilitate highly engaging virtual and onsite professional development sessions for educators, employing an adaptive approach to meet the needs of your participants
  • Engage in internal professional development, including observations, feedback, and coaching, to further professional growth.
  • Complete pre-and post-training operations procedures, including leaving detailed notes, in a timely manner.

About You:

  • Bachelor’s degree, preferably with a focus on English
  • Minimum of two years of US-based English Language Arts teaching experience in 4th-12th grade
  • Strong working knowledge of best practices in literacy instruction
  • Experience integrating technology into classroom instructional models
  • Demonstrated ability to facilitate professional learning experiences for teachers, including an understanding of how to use adult learning principles to meet session objectives
  • Proficient with technology, confident in navigating a virtual learning experience (i.e. Zoom) and using Google Suite
  • Experience using NoRedInk in your own ELA classrooms is an advantage, but not a requirement

Time Commitment and Engagement:

  • Variable weekly schedules, dependent on customer demand.

Most sessions will be scheduled during regular school hours. Occasionally there is flexibility for early morning or evening training sessions across time zones.

  • Peak training season is July-October. Training continues to be scheduled from November-May at a steady, but less frequent, rate.


  • Professional Development Consultants must have the ability to travel as needed for high-demand onsite training days, particularly in July and August. They must be located within 90 minutes of a major airport and have a valid driver’s license.
  • All travel-related expenses (lodging, transportation, meals) are paid upfront by Professional Development Consultants and will be reimbursed within 2-3 weeks.


  • Consultants will bill NoRedInk for the hours worked and will be paid within two weeks of submitting the invoice.
  • $35.00/hour for virtual sessions + up to 30 minutes of prep/wrap-up time per session
  • $45.00/hour for onsite sessions + up to 30 minutes of prep/wrap-up time per session + $25.00/hour of travel to/from onsite sessions
  • $1,400.00 for the forty (40) hours of onboarding in May, payable upon completion
