National Board Certification Courses
Vermont-NEA is the Candidate Support Provider for National Board Certification. National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) has been certifying teachers since the early 90s against rigorous standards. Although this is a voluntary certification, it is a natural continuum of our profession. Accomplished professional teachers, as evidenced by National Board Certification, is a growing voice of our profession. For more information click here.
Reflective Practice and Developing a Peer Review Portfolio
Vermont-NEA realizes we have teachers on the field working on provisional licenses. One path to Vermont Certification is through Peer Review. Vermont-NEA has one class currently in process and intend to have a course in the fall. For more information, please contact Juliette Longchamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEA has entered the micro-credential world, rolling out Micro-Credentials in many interesting topics. To look at the offerings, start an account at nea.certificationbank.com. On March 19th, we will be holding a meeting at Vermont-NEA for those interested in "dipping your toes" into micro-credentials either on your own or with a group of teachers. If you are interested in attending 5-7:30, please email Juliette Longchamp at email@example.com.
