The Career and Technical Teacher Education Program is an approved Vermont Department of Education (DoE) alternative educational licensing route for trades and industry teachers at Vermontís secondary regional career and technical centers.
Typically, once a teacher is hired at a regional career and technical center, s/he enters this three-year program to complete the qualifications for a Vermont Level I Educator License. The teacher-candidate first obtains an apprenticeship license from the DoE, which requires at least a high school diploma and six years of experience in the trades or industry, or an associate degree and at least four years of experience. The teacher-candidate takes education courses and receives support during the next three years from the Career and Technical Teacher Education Program.
