The Region 13 Career and Technical Education Program (CTE) is an accelerated 12-month program designed to provide a pathway to teacher certification for professionals who already have education, work experience, and/or industry licensure/certification in a content area.  This rigorous, field-based program integrates theory with practice allowing teacher-interns to make valuable contributions in preparing students for both college and career.

Participants in this program choose from a variety of career and technical certification areas.  See our Certification Areas page for a full list of certifications covered by this program.

The CTE Certification program has 2 distinct cohorts:

Teaching with Full Pay:

  • During the internship year, the teacher-intern secures a position with a district as a teacher of record with full pay and full benefits.
  • Upon successful completion of the internship year, program requirements and state licensing requirements, participants will earn a Standard teaching certificate in their teaching assignment/certification area.
