Component 4 Online Cohort

For teachers who don’t have a cohort available to them, we offer an online cohort.

As a member of the online cohort, you receive: 

8 online meetings, feedback on assignments from the instructor and cohort members, 30-minutes 1:1 coaching time, and a FastTrack C4 Workbook.

Online cohorts have a definite start date, definite days and times you commit to attend, and a definite completion date. The advantage to the cohort experience is that you are required to have completed assignments that are due on specific dates.
