The College of Education at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University is seeking participants to address the teacher shortage in special education. Teaching assistants, support staff and those with an undergraduate degree can earn initial licensure in special education through a Master of Arts in Special Education (MAT).
The special education program at NC A&T has been awarded a federal grant that affords the opportunity to positively impact individuals seeking to further their education. The Preparing Exceptional Teachers through Accountability and Collaboration (PETAC) project offers full financial support through stipends, and extensive professional development to earn a Masters of Arts in Special Education for 24 scholars. The first cohort began in August, and they are seeking a second cohort of teaching assistants, lateral entry teachers and others of promise with a current teaching license to apply for the MAT program to begin graduate study in August of 2018.
