Licensure Portfolio Directions (videos)

The initial Vermont Professional License (Level I: Beginning Educator's License) is for a three-year period.

After successful completion of three years of teaching and, on the recommendation of the local standards board, a Level I teacher is eligible for the Level II Professional Educators' License.  The Level II teaching license is renewable every seven years.

Upon graduation, students who have successfully completed the program described above are licensed to teach in the State of Vermont, whose license is also recognized fellow members of the NASDTEC. Some states may require additional teacher competency examinations before licensure will be granted. Holders of the initial Vermont license who are teaching in another state must qualify for a regular professional license according to the requirements of that state.  Please see the Vermont Agency of Education website for the most up to date and accurate information.
