Teacher Internship Program

Teacher Internship Program

The Teacher Internship Program (TIP) allows emerging teachers to earn an intern salary as they complete student teaching. The Teacher Internship Program partners with county offices of education and school districts throughout Central California to develop highly qualified teachers.

The TIP is a two semester program which allows students who are completing student teaching to work as a contracted (paid) teacher under an Internship Credential. Typically, Interns find their own job placement in a public or charter school. The TIP staff refers students for employment in high-need subject areas.
