Overview

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme offered by University at Albany satisfies the NYS Requirements for English as a New Language Programs under Part 154. (See “Certified teacher trained in cultural competency, language development and the needs of ENL students”). The target audience for this advanced certificate will mainly be current content (7-12) and classroom (K-6) teachers.

The Advance Certificate in TESOL program targets in-service teachers who already hold a teaching certificate and would like to pursue an additional certificate in the area of TESOL. In line with the regulatory requirement of NYS for teacher education programs, the program will include 50 hours of field experiences and a practicum with students learning English as a second language and in both elementary and secondary schools totaling at least 20 days. Under the guidance and supervision of the field experience coordinator, students will identify and propose potential teacher mentors from the school district he/she is associated with or another local district. 

The mentors proposed will be reviewed based on a set of criteria: being a highly effective TESOL teacher at an elementary/secondary school, with professional or permanent certification in NYS, and prior experience with mentoring. Our student teaching supervisor will work with the approved teacher mentor to guide each student through the field experience and teaching practicum.
