Study of State Certification/Licensure Requirements for Secondary Career and Technical Education Teachers

Teacher certification/licensure requirements across the United States are in constant flux. Career and technical education (CTE), with its many subject disciplines, has historically had two pathways to certification/licensure: a traditional degree-based program of courses, field experiences, and exit exams, and an alternative pathway based primarily on work experience. For the purposes of comparison, potential state certification/licensure updates, program revision, and perhaps policy changes, this study examined the state-by-state requirements for all CTE fields in both pathways. Appendices include: (1) State Contact List; (2) Sample Initial E-mail; (3) Sample Follow-Up E-mail; (4) Phone Script; (5) Data Collection Sheet; (6) E-mail Questionnaire; (7) Alternative Pathway List; (8) Traditional Pathway Degree/Preparation Program Requirements; (9) Alternative Pathway Degree/Preparation Program Requirements; (10) Traditional Pathway Testing Requirements; (11) Alternative Pathway Types by State; (12) Alternative Pathway Testing Requirements; (13) Traditional Pathway Other Requirements; (14) Alternative Pathway Other Requirements; (15) Requirement Differences Between CTE and Other Disciplines; (16) Traditional Pathway Renewal Requirements; (17) Alternative Pathway Renewal Requirements; (18) Traditional Pathway Upgrade Requirements; (19) Alternative Pathway Upgrade Requirements; (20) Traditional Pathway Substitute/Temporary Requirements; (21) Alternative Pathway Substitute/Temporary Requirements; and (22) State Requirements Summaries.
