Teachers who have successfully completed their N.J. teacher certification program are eligible to apply for an NJ educator certification, but the process can be a bit confusing.
In New Jersey, it’s a little more involved than it is elsewhere, but you’re going to want to have a good understanding of your options.
First, you’re probably going to need to fill out some paperwork.
The NJ Educator Certification Program requires you to provide the following information to the NJ Office of Teacher Certification.
First and foremost, you need to complete the NJ Educators Professional Development (PDP) Application Form.
It takes about 20 minutes to complete, and it includes a list of requirements, including a test and your professional development credentials.
This information is not required if you’re not applying for a teacher certification.
Here are some of the important details about the application form.
In the section that asks for a test score, you’ll see that it needs to be submitted by a certified teacher who has been in the field for at least two years.
This means you need a score of at least 70% in each of the subject areas on the form.
Next, you have to complete a teacher evaluation form, which includes your professional experience and the percentage of your students that you have successfully taught.
In addition to the two years of training, you also have to submit a score report and provide a sample lesson plan.
Lastly, you can also submit an online application form, but it’s only accepted by certified NJ educators who are currently teaching.
