Teaching as a New Career for Military Personnel.
John, Martha Tyler
Teaching as a New Career for Military Personnel (TNCMP) is an innovative program initiated by the military to utilize the skills and experiences of people completing military service who wish to make a career change into the teaching field. Marymount University (Virginia) developed the program and is responsible for its implementation. Upon successful completion of admissions requirements, candidates who have the appropriate undergraduate degree are eligible to enter a graduate program in one of two areas--early childhood/elementary education (39 credits) or secondary education (36 credits). Both programs provide the opportunity to earn Master of Education degrees and to qualify for teacher certification. This publication is divided into four chapters presenting the program's purpose, requirements and components, process, and background information on five military people that are part of the program. Appendices provide a description of educational competencies to be demonstrated by students; descriptions of courses required for both the early childhood/elementary and secondary programs; procedures for faculty; an academic needs assessment; advertisements and introductory materials; an example of previous course offerings; and miscellaneous informational details.
