New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey

The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College is one of many community colleges offering the alternate route to teaching preparation program in partnership with New Jersey City University. Candidates who hold a bachelor's degree or higher and want to become licensed teachers without going through a traditional education program can do so through the Alternate Route Program. Coursework can be completed on campus or as a hybrid program with some in class sessions and some online. The NPTNJ program is approved and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Education. The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College is a registered provider (provider # 4285) with the New Jersey Department of Education.

New Pathways To Teaching In New Jersey 50 Hour Pre-Service Hybrid course

This 50 Hour course is comprised of three sections:

• 30 hours of blended instruction (3 in-person sessions combined with on-line learning)

• 8 hours of classroom observation

• 12 hours of clinical experience

The program provides the participant with a “clinical” opportunity through structured observations in a school setting. Collaboration with school districts will provide both a window of opportunity for the candidate and a potential recruitment tool for the district. In addition, 12 hours of clinical work such as tutoring or substitute teaching will offer candidates the opportunity to work with students in an authentic environment.

The program of study is organized by “sessions” of which each one is approximately four (4) hours in length. An additional eight hour “clinical” experience will afford the potential candidate the opportunity to gain true insight into the school environment.

The blended format for the 30 hours of instruction and the 8 hours of clinical practice include the following: 8 sessions, three (3) of which will be face to face classes (sessions #’s 1, 5, and 8). The remaining 5 sessions will be online. Individuals who would like to begin the New Pathways Program as well as those who have already completed the previous 24 hour class may register by calling the registration desk at The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College at 609.570.3311.
