Endorsement programs are available to educators who hold a preliminary or professional Oregon teaching license. Out-of-state educators need to apply for an Oregon teaching license prior to acceptance into an endorsement program.
We offer the following endorsement programs:
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement and Education Leaders for Oregon's English Learners (ELOEL)
The ESOL endorsement program provides Oregon-licensed teachers with a combination of theory and practice for effective instruction that supports students’ English language development.
Successful completion of the program allows licensed teachers to qualify for an Oregon endorsement in ESOL.
Elementary - Multiple Subjects Endorsement
The elementary endorsement program provides Oregon-licensed teachers with a combination of theory and practice for effective instruction in elementary classrooms.
Successful completion of the program allows licensed teachers to qualify for an endorsement in Elementary – Multiple Subjects.
Oregon TSPC provides several ways for teachers holding a preliminary teaching license to add additional single subject endorsements. The CTED program can support these educators with the demonstration of both content knowledge (passing score on the Commission-approved subject mastery test or completing Commission-approved coursework) and pedagogical knowledge (Commission-approved subject-specific pedagogy course).
