New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI)

New Generation of Educators

NGEI will prepare you to teach in a high need elementary school. This program is ideal for recent college graduates as well as professionals with a passion for the teaching profession. In just 18 months you will earn a multiple-subject teaching credential and a Master’s degree! Through an intensive year-long residency at a partnering school, you will benefit from hands-on teaching experiences under the guidance of a master teacher.

The New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI) is a blended teaching credential and master’s initiative that strengthens teacher preparation by delivering the rigor and theory of a master’s degree with the practice and pragmatism of the teaching credential, combined with a year-long residency in a partner school and extensive, clinical experience at a Lab School.

NGEI aims to recruit, prepare, place and retain highly qualified elementary teachers for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Residents will earn a teaching credential and master’s degree in only 18 months and be eligible to be hired by LAUSD at the completion of the program.
