Internship in Career and Technical Education
Upon completion of the program, candidates must complete a Council of Educators (COE) Review. The COE is a performance assessment in which an Administrative Director and the Leadership Program Coordinator review a candidate’s competence in the program competencies and assess the overall quality of the culminating project that the candidate completes during the internship.
For Vocational Director, students are required to successfully complete the Praxis Assessment #6011 - School Leaders Licensure Assessment. Visit the ETS site for the most-current testing requirements.
Program Completion and Certification
Candidates who complete all program requirements, hold no less than a master’s degree, and meet other Pennsylvania certification requirements will be recommended for the Vocational Administrator Certificate.

If, however, a candidate does not hold a graduate degree, he/she must apply and be admitted into the Career and Technical Education MSEd program in order to be awarded the director’s certificate.
