Become an AP Workshop Consultant

Each year innovative and successful education professionals dedicate their time presenting College Board workshops across the country and throughout the world. AP and Pre-AP consultants help train both new and experienced educators, sharing their expertise and best practices with other education professionals.

Why do it?

  • Exchange ideas with colleagues.
  • Join a talented group of teachers, counselors, and administrators in your region and across the nation.
  • Support your colleagues in the teaching community, and help students beyond your classroom.
  • Share best practices, and promote innovation and excellence in your field.

Eligibility Requirements

The AP® Program accepts Workshop Consultant applications for all AP and Pre-AP® subject areas on a rolling basis. Consultants receive an honorarium and are reimbursed for their expenses.

Applicants must:

  • Have experience as an AP Reader in the subject for which you are applying.
  • Be an active or retired teacher, AP coordinator, or administrator from an accredited middle, secondary, or higher education institution; a minimum of three years’ experience is strongly preferred. If a high school educator, you must have completed the AP Course Audit in your subject and currently be teaching the course.
  • Have recently participated in a College Board–sponsored professional development event, such as the AP Annual Conference, public workshops, etc.
  • Commit to fulfilling the mission and goals of the College Board.
  • Be able to successfully integrate current technology and relevant resources into workshop presentations.

Consultants will be expected to present at workshop locations in their geographic area during the academic school year. Specific dates and times will be confirmed if you are chosen.
