Clinical Teaching in 2018 Back

Are you considering Clinical Teaching in 2018? The deadline has already passed for clinical teaching in the Spring of 2018, but there are still opportunities to do clinical teaching in the Fall. Clinical teaching is step three in our certification process. (A two-semester teaching internship is the other option.)

Clinical teaching is a 14-week placement with a fully certified teacher and is open to any ACT candidate that has completed all the requirements (including field based experiences!) This option could be especially beneficial to candidates that have passed all their testing requirements. 
  • Complete application by posted deadline and complete all elements of candidacy.
  • Clinical teaching assignments will be made by participating districts for a length of 14 weeks.
  • Half of your clinical teaching fee is due with the application; the second half is due 6 weeks later.
  • At the end of your 14-week session, and you have successfully met all the district, state, and program requirements, you will be recommended for your standard certificate and considered a fully certified teacher in the state of Texas. 
ACT will be accepting applications for Fall 2018 Clinical Teaching placements between May 1st and 15th. That may seem far away, but summer will be here in the blink of an eye. Mark your calendars so that you do not miss the time to apply.

We also have a list of helpful dates on our website so that you can always view upcoming deadlines and other important dates.       

Your dream of becoming a certified teacher can become a reality in 2018!
