Registered Educator Apprenticeship Program

The Registered Educator Apprenticeship Program provides an inclusive career pathway that changes lives and helps New Hampshire better meet the needs of our schools and K-12 students. This program is being offered in partnership with the National Collaborative for Digital Equity, ApprenticeshipNH, CCSNH, the University System of NH and numerous school districts across the state.

Individuals currently working in schools as paraprofessionals or in other non-teaching roles and others who are looking to start a career in elementary and secondary education are encouraged to consider this unique opportunity. We encourage those from diverse backgrounds to participate.

Value proposition

  • Work full-time (30 hours per week) in a school district, often as a paraprofessional.
  • Take 8-week classes online or at your local community college that fit with your schedule.
  • Earn a salary and benefits while gaining this valuable experience, including pay increases as you progress through the apprenticeship.
  • Receive additional funding for tuition, books, supplies and/or childcare.
  • Take advantage of flexible scheduling such as mother’s hours, school vacations and summer breaks.
  • Engage with other Educator Apprentices for support and encouragement.
  • Complete an associate degree through your local New Hampshire community college and transfer to a four-year college to earn a BA with Teacher Certification.
  • Become a certified teacher in as little as four years.
  • Complete this program while employed and incur little or no debt.
