HOW TO EARN TEACHING CERTIFICATE IN SOUTH CAROLINA By: American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence

How It Works:

How It Works Candidates will need to complete the following steps to become a teacher in South Carolina : 1. Complete the American Board’s required exams. 2. Apply for a Statement of Eligibility from South Carolina Department of Education (Office of Educator Certification). 3. Obtain an offer of employment from a South Carolina public school, and provide verification of the offer to the Office of Educator Certification.


4. Complete American Board’s year-long clinical experience with a coach assigned by the school district that employs you. 5. Receive an Institutional Recommendation from American Board. 6. Receive an Alternate Route Teaching Certificate. This certificate is temporary and will initially be valid for 1 year. After your first year of teaching, you will then need to renew the Alternate Route Teaching Certificate for two additional years.


7. Teach for 3 years while completing introductory and formal teacher evaluation requirements. These requirements are specific to your school district. 8. Within your first 3 years of teaching, pass the Praxis exam in Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT). 9. Apply to upgrade your Alternate Route Teaching Certificate to a Professional Teaching Certificate . This certificate will need to be renewed every 5 years throughout your career.

The Clinical Experience:

The Clinical Experience A clinical experience is a year-long program where new teachers are monitored and evaluated to provide feedback on their teaching skills and style while helping them adjust to leading the classroom. A clinical experience requires the individual to be the teacher of record. This program is not an unpaid internship, student teaching job, or substitute teaching job.
