Welcome to the Region 10 CERTification Program
Are You Ready to Begin Your Career in Education?
The Region 10 Teacher Certification Program, created in 1992, is a state-accredited alternative certification program that provides an opportunity for highly qualified individuals with at least a bachelor's degree to gain Texas teacher certification.
If accepted, candidates will complete a combination of rigorous coursework and field-based experience that prepare our participants to be successful, effective teachers.
Two Certification Routes
Participants complete a teaching practicum in a school district, charter, or accredited private school through one of these two options:
- The internship route is open to all program candidates. Interns complete one school year (two consecutive semesters) in a full time paid teaching position.
Clinical Teaching Experience (CTE)
- The clinical teaching experience (CTE) route requires an additional screening process. Selected candidates serve 15 weeks in a non-paid position with a cooperating mentor teacher. We are accepting applications for the CTE Fall 2020 from February 24, 2020 to March 23, 2020. CTE Application form.
- Upon successful completion of all program requirements, participants are recommended for a Texas Standard Certificate. The Educator Preparation Programs Advisory Board considers recommendations and gives approval for certification.
