By partnering with the US-based TEACH-NOW Graduate School of Education, AISA enables its member schools’ staff to enrol in a US teacher certification at substantially discounted rates.
The TEACH-NOW teacher certification route is a nine-month intensive programme that incorporates competencies in all of the fundamentals of educational pedagogy and includes a comprehensive 12-week school-based teaching practicum. TEACH-NOW Graduate School of Education operates out of the District of Columbia and its teacher certification program leads to licensure via the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), or from Arizona through the Arizona Department of Education, or from Hawaii through the Hawaii Teacher Standards Board. A U.S. state-issued teaching license is generally recognized all over the world and is increasingly sought by international schools in the AISA region.
To qualify for a license, candidates must have at least the equivalent of a U.S. Bachelor’s Degree. If your Bachelor’s Degree is from a non-U.S. institution, transcripts must be submitted along with a course-by-course evaluation by a NACES member agency before applying for this programme to ensure eligibility.
Participants can register and start at any point in the year and are responsible for arranging a school in which to complete their 12-week practicum.
Teach-Now licensure officers will work with candidates on an individual basis to advise and guide them during the application and online learning phase.
The standard registration price for this programme is US$ 6,000. As AISA members, you benefit from a 10% discount, reducing the cost to $5,400 per person.
