The alternative teacher pathway is intended to allow districts to hire candidates with specific content knowledge and who hold an undergraduate degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution of higher education and need teacher training based on the Colorado Teacher Quality Standards. Alternative teacher preparation programs can vary in length from 1 year to 2 years. While serving as a teacher, alternative candidates put what they learn into practice immediately. Visit designated agencies for alternative teacher preparation list to find an alternative preparation program (be sure to select “alternative” in the drop-down menu under “type”.)
