STEM Teaching Certification Fellowship Overview
- Immediate work with students
- Financial, credentialing and job opportunity support
- Professional development and community
EnCorps offers a robust slate of professional development, including in person and online sessions. Fellows share their experience, ideas, support and best practices with a cohort of peers. Fellows and alumni build a sense of community and camaraderie through online platforms, observations and social events.
EnCorps Fellows may begin orientation and pre-service in December (mid-year start) or in June at Summer Residential Institute. During the first one or two academic semesters, Fellows engage in pre-service volunteering at a local partner school and are supported in making a decision regarding their pathway into teaching. Throughout their EnCorps experience, Fellows engage in high touch professional development, networking with peers and the education community and putting their newly developed teaching skills into practice.
The accelerated pathway allows Fellows to earn or work on their Career and Technical (CTE) or Single Subject credentials in the spring or summer and begin full time teaching as early as the fall after they are accepted. This pathway takes between 6-9 months to begin full time teaching.
The traditional or residency pathway allows Fellows to spend 1-2 semesters in pre-service guest teaching as well as a full year completing coursework and student teaching or teaching side-by-side a mentor. This pathway takes between 12-24 months to begin full time teaching.
