This classroom-based teacher preparation option is designed for individuals who have the basic qualifications to teach but have not completed a teacher preparation program as part of their college degree.
The pedagogy-focused program provides the skills, knowledge and dispositions required to obtain a Professional Teaching Certificate. Candidates complete requirements of the program while employed as full-time classroom teachers.
The Metro RESA iLEAD program is a PSC approved Alternative Educational Leadership Certification and Preparation program for school and system leaders. Systems recommend potential candidates who are working in a leadership position for at least half a day every day. The term leadership position refers to those positions requiring leadership certification as determined by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. The iLEAD program is a one year job-embedded program providing authentic work in a real time setting. Metro RESA is an approved provider for both Tier I and Tier II certification.
Endorsements prepare pre- or in-service educators to teach in particular subject areas in Georgia public Schools Systems. Metro RESA offers many PSC-approved Endorsements.
