What does an Education Consultant do?

Education consultants deliver professional development training, ongoing coaching, and other support for teachers and other education professionals. They provide guidance to administrators and other stakeholders in developing or improving training programs. Consultants may assist with training on the use of education programs, tools, and technologies. They may also be involved in the sales of education products and services, and expected to meet sales quotas.

Education consultants typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in an education discipline, but some employers require a master’s degree. These consultants also would have a strong background in the education field, either as a teacher or administrator. Some roles require consultants to have a valid teaching certificate, and required credentials may vary by location. These roles require strong presentation and communication skills.
