You need to login or register to save this route.


Job-embedded programs allow an individual to serve as a teacher of record in a Tennessee classroom while completing required educator preparation classes. Potential teachers who want to teach in the classroom while also completing their program may do so while holding a job-embedded practitioner license. Educators currently enrolled in an educator preparation program that has a formal partnership agreement with a Tennessee school district on file with the office of educator licensure and preparation may be issued a license through this pathway. To be issued a practitioner license through the job-embedded partnership pathway, the applicant must: hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university, and ensure that the program they are enrolled in has a formal partnership agreement with the Tennessee school district in which he/she will be teaching on file with the department. Educators are encouraged to contact approved educator preparation providers to verify whether they have a job-embedded program and to learn more about program requirements.
