Castleton Educator Preparation Program (CEPP)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Graduate Programs

The Castleton Educator Preparation Program (CEPP) is a one-year, 36-credit post baccalaureate licensure program approved by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators and the Agency of Education's Program Approval Committee and provides an alternative certification route for individuals who have already completed a bachelor's degree in a "teachable" field.  The certification courses are offered during three full-time semesters: three courses (10 credits) during the summer semester, 3 courses (11 credits) in the fall semester, and 3 courses (15 credits) in the spring semester, which includes a student teaching experience and a student teaching seminar.  There may be prerequisite professional education courses, as well as possible content courses, that would need to be completed prior to beginning the spring sequence (see below) if the program committee feels that additional content knowledge must be gained.  A transcript evaluation completed by the Education Department's program committee will determine how much, if any, pre-coursework would be required.
