Licensure and Degree Requirements

The Virginia Department of Education has rendered several requirements for individuals to meet in order to earn a teaching license in each of the CTE program areas listed below.  These requirements fall into five categories.  These categories include content area coursework (what you will be teaching), industry experience, professional education coursework, education internships, and licensure test requirements.
