Teacher Apprenticeship Program Logo

TAP's mission is to attract, support and develop the most effective teachers and school leaders in the state of Vermont.

TAP is designed for individuals with a bachelor's degree, strong content knowledge and work experience, who are interested in pursuing a teaching career. TAP is an 8 month full-time internship that includes coursework and student teaching with a mentor teacher. TAP prepares candidates to become licensed directly through the Vermont Agency of Education. Since its inception in 2002, the program has grown to support future teachers and administrators throughout the state of Vermont. Currently over 500 TAP graduates are educating our Vermont students. Over 20 other graduates are teaching in other parts of the United States or overseas.
