Education Specialist Mild/Moderate - Internship Credential
Teaching Internships Requirements
Teacher in Preparation (TIP) Internship Program. The TIP Internship program is designed for qualified individuals who have prior classroom experience and who seek an alternative route to obtaining a Preliminary Teaching Credential. Students must possess a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution and meet all criteria for admission to a basic credential program. Candidates who have been instructional assistants or successful long-term substitute teachers and who are holders of provisional short-term permits or short-term staff permits are good candidates for the internship program.
Interns have a year-long contract with a participating school district, earning a modestly reduced salary. In addition, interns enroll in coursework leading to a Preliminary Teaching Credential (Single Subject or Multiple Subject) or Level I Teaching Credential (Special Education).
