NetAPT: Network for Alternative Preparation in Teaching

NetAPT is a non-degree, certification-only program supporting participants as they work towards professional licensure. Using a competency-based structure, NetAPT meets individual needs through customized curriculum, flexible scheduling, and personalized support. 

Collaboration! NetAPT is established on the foundation of university and school partners designing content and supporting participants. Current partners include: Chester, Chesterfield, Clover, Fairfield, Fort Mill, Kershaw, Rock Hill, and York One.

Subject Specific! Modules are specific to district-requested subject areas with tasks applicable to school and district context. 

Flexible Structure! Through a competency-based program, participants proceed through modules at their own pace. Enrollment is structured in three-month "blocks" with suggested completion occurring in 12-18 months.
