Teacher Certification

Teacher certification, also known as teacher licensure, is the credential that permits educators to instruct students at the elementary, middle and high school levels. All states require teachers to obtain certification to work in public and some private schools. Each state sets the requirements for achieving teacher certification within that state.  The traditional route to obtain a certification would be a teaching certification program found in colleges and universities while the non-traditional route is the alternative certification program which is now the preferred, fastest, and most affordable route for those who already have a bachelor’s degree.


Teachers Hired

Teachers of Tomorrow

We have created a best-in-class alternative teacher certification program to ensure we meet the needs of career changers who want to come into the teaching profession, our schools who need talent now, and students who want a highly professional, engaging teacher. Our teacher certification program involves the following steps.


We attract tens of thousands of diverse teacher certification students each year across the United States, primarily in Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas. We actively recruit a candidate pool that more closely matches the demographics of student populations.


Candidates must meet minimum requirements to be accepted into our program and become a teacher. Requirements include earning a bachelor’s degree with the minimum GPA for the state as verified by college transcript(s), passing the Teachers of Tomorrow interview, and a clear background check.


We provide over 300 hours of comprehensive coursework during our teacher alternative certification program. Our rigorous training process ensures that only well-qualified candidates enter the classroom.


The program facilitates the hiring process by aligning district needs with our diverse candidate pool. Our candidates are hired in high-need areas including STEM, bilingual, and special education. We provide our partner school districts with lists of qualified candidates.


The research is clear that first year teachers need support in order to succeed. Our Field Supervisors work with the teacher’s mentor and school principal to ensure our candidates get the critical support and help they need to be successful in the first year. It is why 68% of our teachers are still teaching after 5 years!


We assist in managing candidate completion of all the teaching certification requirements for our candidates in each state. It is not easy to get a teaching certification – but our expert advisors make sure you get the credentials you need to get a classroom of your own!
