Career and Technical Education

Vocational 1

Field-based/Competency-based CTE Teacher Vocational I Certification Program

Program Vocational 1 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.

See the guide that outlines the steps to take during your journey toward becoming a successful CTE teacher.
