Career and TechnicalTeacher Education Program

The Program is an initial educational licensing route for new trades and industry instructors at Vermont's 17 career and technical centers (grades 11-12).

Admission to the program is limited to high school graduates with at least six years experience in the trades or industry; or individuals with an associate's degree and four years experience. Once hired at a regional high school tech center, teachers can enter this 3 year program to obtain their Level I Educator License. The program includes 24 Vermont Tech undergraduate credits earned by completing six courses.

"Technical education in Vermont is taught by experienced tradespeople specializing in the arts, business, hospitality, manufacturing, construction trades, automotive, electrical, and plumbing, just to name a few," said Patti Caultas, the Program's Director. "Recognizing that individuals in the trades and industry can become masters in their fields without earning a college degree," she continued, "the state of Vermont developed this program to encourage and support their entry into teaching."

The trades endorsements from the Vermont Department of Education are:

  • Agriculture & Natural Resources

  • Architecture & Construction

  • Arts & Communication

  • Business

  • Education & Training

  • Health

  • Hospitality

  • Human Services

  • Information Technology
