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.
Our communities are in need of qualified and committed teachers to help students develop competitive 21st century skills.
