“On-The-Job Training” or your Internship, during the school year
Work alongside a supervising teacher, 5 days a week, minimum of 3 hours a day
Internship site must be approved by CMTEP
Adult Learner is responsible for securing Internship site
If a qualified supervising teacher is not available to you, you may be considered for a "self-directed internship, with CMTEP approval.
3 on-site observations conducted by CMTEP Field Consultants, up to 2 of these may be done via Zoom
During this time the Adult Learner has the opportunity to bring together the theory and practice in such a way that responds to the needs of the children.
The Adult Learner is responsible for securing her/his own Practicum Site (Montessori School) and must be approved in advance by CMTEP.
The duration of the Practicum Phase is from September to June, Monday - Friday, for a minimum of 3 hours each day, 5 days per week. Exact dates will be dependent on that particular school's start date and end date for that school year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are able to create more flexibility in our program, enabling us to reach out to people in more remote areas.
Currently, we are able to offer a teacher training program fully accredited through MACTE with a globally-recognized ECE credential from AMS.
Online instruction, blended with a face-to-face Residency where the Montessori materials will be presented, coupled with a 10 month Practicum at your school site, completes the process.
