2. Vermont Agency of Education Peer Review Submission Program

For those who feel comfortable creating their portfolio by themselves:

Vermont offers an “alternate route to licensure” for those who have not completed a traditional educator preparation program at a college or university. Vermont’s alternate route is  License by Evaluation or “Peer Review.” Every Peer Review candidate completes a portfolio, which  is reviewed by experienced teachers culminating in an interview.

Requirements:

  • A candidate must hold a B.A./ B.S./ B.F.A. Official transcripts may be sent to AOE.Transcripts@vermont.gov.
  • All Praxis Core (or alternate test scores) and Praxis II (if applicable to endorsement sought) successfully passed and scores submitted to Agency of Education.
  • A current resume – please include relevant teaching experience.
  • Attend a peer review clinic. Clinic attendees will receive a certificate of attendance to submit with their completed portfolios.

For more information about the program, please visit the Vermont Agency of Education here.
