On Saturday, May 12, 2012, the Office of Continuing Education at Union County College will be hosting an Open House on the New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey (NPTNJ) program. The Open House will be held from 10 am to 12:00 pm in the Main Lecture Hall on the College’s Cranford campus. This information session is a great way to learn more about the alternate route teacher program, in which you can become a certified teacher in 11 months and earn credits towards a Masters degree.
NPTNJ is an Alternate Route teacher preparation program that is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education. The Alternate Route in New Jersey was designed to allow individuals that already hold a bachelor’s degree (or higher), but did not complete a traditional teacher training program, to become licensed teachers. The courses are graduate level, and the program can be taken for credit or non-credit.
The College’s Cranford campus is located at 1033 Springfield Avenue. To register for the Open House, which is recommended, please call (908) 709-7600. All are welcome.
