What is Alternative
Teacher Certification?

Alternative teacher certification programs allow people who have received their bachelor’s degrees in subject areas other than education to become a teacher. For example, if you have a mathematics degree and decide you want to teach math, this may be ideal. You can choose this option to avoid going back to school to obtain a degree in education. Instead, you can enroll in an alternative teacher certification program. This allows you to focus on the specialized courses needed to prepare you for teaching.

There are high-quality programs available, like iteach, that hold the same level of accreditation as university education programs.

What iTeach Program Graduates Have to Say

Frequently Asked Questions

You may apply at any time; iteach enrolls students on a continual basis. 

Nope. That’s exactly what this program is for. No matter what bachelor’s degree you have, it’s your subject matter expertise, combined with your successful completion of our program, that makes you eligible to teach. We’ll teach you what you need to know and do in order to be a successful teacher yourself.

That’s up to you. It could be as little as eight weeks. Our program is paced to get you into a full-time paid position soon, but not too soon. We’ve built in assessments and training evaluations to make sure you feel ready and able to step into the role.

You can complete all program-required instructional coursework within several months. The entire iteach program, including your teaching residency, is designed to be completed within one school year. However, you have two full school years to find a teaching position as long as you are enrolled in the iteach program. Once hired, you must complete all program requirements during your two-semester field experience.
