An Internship Certificate is a two-year certificate for those who have completed at least 50% of an approved graduate program leading to an Initial Certificate.
With a valid Internship Certificate, or a letter from your school confirming that you are eligible for an Internship Certificate (see sample here), you can apply to NYCDOE teaching positions in your certification area. Citywide there is the greatest need in the following subject areas: English as a New Language, Science, Math, World Languages, Bilingual Education, and Students with Disabilities. There is also a need for teachers in parts of Brooklyn and the Bronx.
Reach out to your college or university certification office to find out if you are eligible for an Internship Certificate. Learn more about this certificate type from NYSED here.
Note that when you complete or leave your college or university program, your Internship Certificate will no longer be valid and you will need to apply for an Initial Certificate.
