AEL Instructional Staff Professional Pathway in Transitions
Movement from one level to the next (i.e. Transitions Certified Instructor to Transitions Specialist) is contingent on meeting minimum requirements of the previous column. Therefore, all potential responsibilities and tasks accumulate as one navigates the pathway.
To begin the Transitions pathway, an instructor must be a Preferred Instructor AND complete criteria to become either an ABE or ESL Standards Proficient Instructor.
All adult education instructors are required to have a BS/BA degree in education or related field (excluding CTE-only instructors). All new teachers are required to complete the online New Teacher Orientation course within 6 months of hire.
The following document lists out all the requirements for the Transitions Professional Pathway.
