Georgia Non-Traditional Educator Preparation Providers offer a wide selection of endorsements that enhance an educator’s professional knowledge and skills. These endorsements recognize additional expertise, qualify educators to teach in specialized areas, and add value to a certificate. In some areas, the endorsement is required in order to be considered in-field in a designated area, while in other cases the endorsement is not required but simply strengthens and enhances competency levels. At the same time, some endorsements authorize the educator to work in the designated area only at the grade level and subject matter of the base certificate while other endorsements authorize work in all subjects at specific grade levels. Specific information is found in the in-field statement in each endorsement rule. Visit the Non-Traditional providers in your area to see which endorsements they offer. You will find that they all offer a variety of programs to help you achieve your professional goals.
