Why Enroll with Florida Teachers
From enrollment to employment, Florida Teachers is by your side. We are proud to offer you a unique array of benefits. When you enroll, here’s what you’ll receive from us – and nowhere else:
- Save $150. Until September 30th, Temporary Permit Holders may enroll for an unheard-of $95!
- It’s risk-free. Once you have been admitted into the program and have submitted your one-time, low enrollment fee, you’ll never pay another Florida Teachers program fee until you’re hired as a full-time teacher, earning full pay and full benefits. We have complete confidence in our program, which is why we gladly invest in your success. After you enroll, leave the rest to us! The best part? If at any point, you decide not to continue with the program, you’ll never have to pay a cent!
- Claim (or reclaim) your job! If you have been working on a Temporary Certificate, there’s, unfortunately, little job security in your current position. As you juggle certificate extensions and filling in the gaps, your job may not be still available when you’re ready to come back to it. You’ve worked hard to become a teacher and deserve your dream job! Earning a Professional Certificate is a near-guaranteed way to ensure job security and we can help!
- Zero deadlines. We understand that life has the ability to throw a curveball or two! Our program is designed for you to succeed, which is why our online training is 100% self-paced! You’ll never have to worry about missing a deadline. This is your program, so find what works for you.
- Quality resources. Once you submit your enrollment fee, you’ll gain immediate access to over 80 hours of online teacher training, developed by leading educators! Our training is consistently updated to provide you with nothing short of the best.
Why Earn a Professional Certificate
Earning a Professional Certificate can solidify your career as a teacher. You’re already teaching on a Temporary Certificate, but here’s why it’s important to take the next step and work towards a Professional Certificate:
- Land (and keep) your dream job! Principals and hiring managers often give preferential treatment to educators who hold a Professional Certificate, because it shows dedication and commitment to the field. If you have your eye on a more popular school or teaching position, earning your Professional Certificate could give you the extra boost needed to make you stand out from the crowd!
- Receive full benefits. You are a teacher and deserve to earn full benefits! Earn your Professional Certificate and this will be the case.
- Earn a full-time teacher salary. As a teacher with a Professional Certificate, you have more leverage when negotiating salaries. Also, once you are a teacher for consecutive years in the same position, you may be eligible for incremental yearly raises.
- Contribute to your Teacher Retirement Pension. Teachers in Florida are automatically enrolled in the Florida Retirement System Investment Plan. As you contribute a small percentage of your salary towards your fund, your employer will match it. The more years you teach, the higher the Florida state contribution will be! It’s better to start contributing toward your fund sooner, rather than later because you must contribute a minimum of 8 years. The investment you’ve accrued may be collected at age 65, Florida’s retirement age.
- Ditch Temporary Certificate extension fees for good! For just $95, you can enroll with Florida Teachers, work toward earning your Professional Certificate, and never have to pay another Temporary Certification extension fee again!
