Become a Virginia Educator
With a nationwide shortage of teachers, CCWA offers opportunities for those who wish to transition into education from another career field. The EducateVA Career Switcher program has prepared more than 1,800 teachers since 2004.
This program does require additional prerequisites: a bachelor's degree, three or more years of full-time work experience, a PRAXIS Subject Assessment, specific to the content area you would like to teach and the Virginia Communication and Literacy Assessment. These prerequisites ensure that participants will be eligible for a license and can enter the classroom, upon completion of Level 1 – the 18-week coursework semester.
