FTNC LogoNCDPI is looking for highly qualified teachers to offer college-level courses in N.C. high schools. The application deadline for the Future Teachers of NC program has been extended to Nov. 21. Through this new program, students can be exposed to career opportunities in K-12 education while earning college credit.

All teachers who are accepted for the program must attend the 3-day curriculum training Dec. 6-8 in Chapel Hill. The UNC system will cover the costs of the training, curriculum, and teacher expenses (including sub, travel, subsistence). FTNC teachers may come from any content area as long as they meet the FTNC Instructor Requirements outlined in the linked application (see link below final item) and agree to add the CTE Education and Training endorsement once it is available.
