For over forty years, the Upper Valley Educators Institute has been helping talented adults with wide-ranging experience become great teachers.
UVEI differs from most traditional schools of education. The percentage of time allotted to academic theory (80%) and classroom practice (20%) is reversed. Each intern works four days a week, full time, in a classroom with a master mentor teacher.
UVEI is a competency-based program, each to be demonstrated by the intern at the level expected of a beginning teacher. That is how interns graduate from the program and receive certification. No exams or other end-game rituals are required.
