NC TEACH, North Carolina Teachers of Excellence for All CHildren, is a statewide teacher licensure program administered by the University of North Carolina, in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. NC TEACH is designed to recruit, prepare, and support mid-career professionals as they begin a teaching career in North Carolina's public schools.
UNC-Chapel Hill offers licensure in:
- Middle Grades
- Secondary Grades
- Kindergarten - Grade 12
- French - no new admissions for 2009-2010 or 2010-2011
- Spanish - no new admissions for 2009-2010 or 2010-2011
NC TEACH is a non-degree licensure only program.
The program begins during second summer session with an all day orientation. The July 4th holiday will be observed.
NC TEACH was awarded a Transition to Teaching grant by the U.S. Department of Education in an effort to expand the current program to focus on recruiting and preparing quality teachers in high-need licensure areas for high-need school districts in NC. This expanded program is called NC TEACH II.
Program participants who secure a position to teach in identified school districts and charter schools in high-need subject areas of mathematics, science and special education, and who are committed to remaining in a teaching position in a high-need school for a minimum of three years can sign a Statement of Intent to be NC TEACH II teachers. In return for this three-year commitment, the teacher will receive a $1000 stipend and a laptop computer or $2000 technology allowance.
