RIGHT COLUMN TITLE
A Vocational Intern Certificate will be issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for a three-year period for teaching an approved secondary career and technical education program in the Commonwealth. During this time, the candidate will complete undergraduate or graduate requirements within the Temple University career and technical education teacher preparation program.
The candidate must be accepted into the career and technical education teacher preparation program at Temple University and pass the appropriate occupational competency examination. The candidate must complete and submit all the necessary documentation to Temple University. The University will then recommend the candidate for the Vocational Intern Certificate.
The Vocational Intern Certificate is good for three (3) calendar years from the date of issue. For example, an intern certificate issued any time in August of one year will expire on July 31 of the following year. You can only apply for the intern certificate if you are currently teaching or guaranteed a full-time teaching position. PDE will not renew an Intern certificate.
The candidate is responsible for communicating with the CTE Coordinator of Teacher Certification, Advising and Admission. Application documents and directions are available through that office.
