OVERVIEW
Program VITAL:  a Field-based/Competency-based
CTE Teacher Vocational I Certification Program

Program VITAL is designed to serve individuals who are hired as secondary education career and technical (CTE) teachers directly from business or industry with little or no previous preparation as teachers.

The program is individualized and organized around planned activities.  These activities take place on a weekly basis in a regional professional development center and in the intern teacher’s own classroom.  The Temple University professional staff coordinates these activities to provide intern teachers with rich experiences to develop specialized teaching skills.

Below is a guide outlining the steps to follow during your journey toward becoming a successful CTE teacher.  A Field Resource Associate (FRA), who is a dedicated mentor, will visit you in your school and assist you in the process.

Email Kelly Homick or call (215-204-6226) for information.  We look forward to working with you!
