Alternate Route Teaching Program

Mission Statement: The Rutgers-CESP Regional Training Center for Alternate Route Teachers develops in aspiring and provisionally licensed K-12 teachers the competencies to facilitate academic skill acquisition and character development essential for student success.
Since 2003, the Rutgers CESP Regional Training Center for Alternate Route Teachers has helped career changers, recent college graduates and substitute teachers launch careers in education as provisionally licensed teachers. The center serves alternate route teaching candidates in six counties throughout New Jersey, including Camden and Mercer counties. Our program features engaging, interactive classes with course colleagues as well as individual attention from caring instructors committed to helping candidates realize their potential as effective and transformational teachers.
