Clinical Teaching Timelines
Clinical teaching allows you to practice before you teach on your own. It is an unpaid, 14-week assignment in which you will teach alongside an experienced, certified teacher. Clinical teaching is a shorter route to certification than the teaching internship, which lasts one year.
