Certificate of Eligibility Educator Preparation Program

(previously known as alternate route)

 

The ASPIRE to Teach - Certificate of Eligibility (CE) Educator Preparation Program provides CE teacher candidates with experiences and guidance to develop and deliver effective instruction to their students while earning their provisional licensure in New Jersey. The curriculum centers on Universal Design for Learning, High-Leverage Practices, and Relationship-Driven Instruction. ASPIRE Lead Instructors (ALIs) work to help each teacher develop proficiency across the New Jersey Professional Standards for Teachers through online learning modules, video coaching, Professional Learning Community (PLC) meetings, and individualized support.  

ASPIRE is an online program that offers a 50 Hour Component and a fully supported two-year component with monthly PLC meetings. Before beginning the 50 Hour component all candidates must have their NJDOE Certificate of Eligibility (CE).
