Department of Education

http://www.uvm.edu/~doe/

The undergraduate Teacher Education programs include Art, Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Special Education, Elementary, Middle Level, Music, Physical Education and Secondary Education. All students are required to meet specific academic and performance criteria for admittance into the professional portion of their enrolled program, for a teaching internship placement, as well as for licensure recommendation.

Requirements for Teacher Preparation Programs

Candidacy

The professional programs begin with the student enrolling in the College of Education and Social Services as a candidate for licensure. Candidacy status is the stage prior to acceptance into the Professional portion of the Education sequence and, for some programs, may also be available to students enrolled in other colleges at UVM.

Intercollege Transfer

Students transferring to the College of Education and Social Services for any Teacher Education program are required to have a minimum overall grade-point average of 2.50 or higher and it must be possible to earn an overall grade-point average of 3.00 before reaching student teaching and program completion. NOTE: Some programs require specific grade-point averages for candidates to enter the Professional portion of the Education sequence. 

Academic Concentration

All students enrolled in a teacher preparation program are required to complete an academic concentration in the liberal arts and sciences. The academic concentration must consist of thirty or more credits.  A list of the options based on program and the requirements are available through the CESS Student Services Office website. Students are required to meet with a faculty advisor to determine academic concentration. 

Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor prior to the selection of an academic concentration and throughout their program of study.

Portfolio Development and Professional Licensure

In accordance with the Vermont Core Teaching Standards, students seeking a license to teach must develop documentation that they can perform in ways that address state standards. Each candidate must assemble that documentation in a pre-professional portfolio according to program guidelines. While students have candidacy status, they should maintain a file which includes all materials from courses completed so that selected items can be included in the portfolio. Portfolio preparation will be reviewed with students at various points in each program. The portfolio will be scored by two faculty members from the program in which the student is enrolled. 

Application to Teacher Education

In some programs, candidates must apply to the professional program sequence. Applications are available in each departmental office. Once the candidate’s application is complete, the program faculty will review the materials which include: a record of academic performance at UVM, evidence of superior course work, and passing scores on PRAXIS Core (or fulfillment of this requirement by one of the approved alternate options) as determined for Vermont. In some programs, students are required to complete this application and gain acceptance before being eligible to enroll in the professional education courses.

Please consult a program coordinator or advisor for further information. This includes: CESS students who are already enrolled as candidates in the teacher education programs; students who transferred to CESS; and students in other colleges on campus who plan to maintain their primary affiliation with their home college while completing the Vermont Agency of Education approved requirements in the CESS.

Student Teaching Internship Placement

If a candidate’s application to a Teacher Education program is approved, the candidate completes a sequence of professional education courses and applies during the junior year to intern as a student teacher during the senior year. The candidate submits the application to student teach to the program coordinator. The application lists the current set of criteria that permit a candidate to qualify for student teaching. 

Once admitted to student teaching, students may be required to successfully complete an interview process and be accepted by an approved public school teacher/administrator before being placed for student teaching. After placement, the student will carry out an internship under the guidance of an approved mentor teacher and departmental supervisor. Although many students remain in the Burlington area, not all can be placed close to campus. Effort is made to accommodate student preference regarding placement site and the semester during which student teaching will occur, but all students should be prepared to student teach in either the fall or spring semester of their senior year. 

Note: Students who are not admitted to student teaching may submit an appeal to the program faculty and Director of Teacher Education. 

Application for Licensure

Candidates must meet specific requirements to be recommended for licensure. These requirements are available in each program office as well as the CESS Student Services office, 528 Waterman. Students who successfully complete a teacher preperation program are eligible to apply for licensure. Applications for VT licensure are only available from the Vermont Agency of Education.

Teacher Assessment–PRAXIS Core Academic Skills Test for Educators (PRAXIS Core)

Students are required to submit passing scores for PRAXIS Core as part of their application to the professional portion of their Teacher Education program. Passing scores must be received by the CESS Student Services Office before the student is considered eligible for a teaching internship placement. If the student does not meet these conditions, the student may submit an appeal to the program faculty and Director of Teacher Education. 

Approved Alternatives to PRAXIS Core Academic Skills Test for Educators (PRAXIS Core)

The CESS  will accept PRAXIS I, SAT, GRE, or ACT scores as approved by the Vermont Agency of Education. If the student has one of the aforementioned test scores, the student may submit those scores to the CESS Student Services office for review in accordance with Vermont Agency of Education standards. 

Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Preparation programs and GraduateTeacher Preparation programs: Applicants will provide passing scores on PRAXIS Core (or approved alternatives) before being admitted to the program. Students who receive conditional acceptance must provide passing scores for PRAXIS Core before being eligible for a teaching internship placement.
