Certificate of Eligibility (CE) Educator Preparation Programs

The CE educator preparation program refers to a non-traditional teacher preparation program designed for those individuals who have not completed a formal teacher preparation program at an accredited college or university, but wish to obtain the necessary training to become a NJ certified teacher (previously known as "alternate route"). To learn more, please refer to the CE Standard Pathways document.

Since the initial proposal to update teacher preparation and certification requirements on February 4, 2015, Department staff members have met with several groups and individuals to hear stakeholder feedback. Following the May 6 publication of potential changes resulting from outreach efforts and the related public testimony on May 20, the Department on June 3 presented to the State Board of Education an updated regulatory package at proposal level. The following resources provide more information and have been updated to reflect changes based on feedback from February 4 – June 3:
