International Teaching Certificate for New Teachers
LEADERSHIP AND GUIDANCE FOR NEW TEACHERS IN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS
The International Teaching Certificate for New Teachers supports the new teacher entering the profession at an international school site without a teaching credential or license. This professional development, continuing education certificate program ensures the development of best practices in the international classroom. However, all courses are non credit-bearing and do not lead to a teaching credential.
The program is 36 weeks in length and delivered during the fall and spring. It is designed to advance, develop and support the new teacher during the first year of teaching. Students take three online courses during three consecutive twelve-week terms. The courses are lead by faculty internationally recognized in the following areas of educational importance:
- Child and adolescent development
- Reading and language considerations
- Pedagogical strategies and instructional methodologies
Each new teacher is also mentored throughout the program by an Alliant-trained support provider - a Master Teacher. Master Teachers possess five or more years of experience in the international school setting, documented by exceptional best practices and outstanding student-performance records.
