L.E.A.D. Program (Licensure in Education for Adults with Degrees)

Any student who has received a Bachelor’s Degree (either B.A. or B.S.) is eligible to add teaching licensure to his/her credentials. While the individual programs vary by subject area, most post-baccalaureate students are able to complete their licensure preparation courses in four or five semesters, attending classes full-time. Individual program guides are available through the Admissions Office. Depending on the licensure area sought (Early Childhood Education, Intervention Specialist Education, Multi-Age Physical Education, Middle Childhood Education, or Adolescent to Young Adult Education), the Coordinator of the L.E.A.D. Program from the Division of Education will also provide assistance in planning each student’s particular preparatory program. Call 330-490-7177 for specific information.

Regardless of licensure program, certain commonalities apply to any student who elects to participate in the Teacher Preparation Program after completing his/her bachelor’s degree.

1. Most of the basic education courses required for licensure can be taken EITHER at the graduate or undergraduate level. The equivalencies are listed below:

Students may elect, by individual courses, to take any class at the graduate OR undergraduate level in fulfillment of licensure program requirements.

2. In preparation for licensure, each student must complete at least 300 hours of field experience PRIOR to student teaching. These documented hours must represent a range of experiences with diverse learners in urban, suburban, and rural districts, and both public and parochial schools. Additionally, at least one of these experiences must include accommodating students with special needs. The student’s course instructors, advisor, and the Education Placement Office will assist each student in fulfilling these requirements prior to student teaching.

3. As a condition for visiting schools or working with students, Walsh University requires each licensure candidate to submit a clear BCII background check.

All students should be aware that prior criminal convictions, whether or not the conviction has been expunged, can affect his/her ability to obtain a license to teach in the State of Ohio and/or affect his/her ability to obtain employment in a pre-school program, parochial school, public school district or chartered non-public school.

It is the student’s responsibility to determine whether he or she is eligible for licensure and/or employment as a teacher in the State of Ohio. Each Walsh University education student is responsible for maintaining the high moral and ethical standards necessary to be included in field experiences, pre-student/student teaching and to become licensed to teach in the State of Ohio.

4. The pre-student teaching experience at Walsh University is completed in the same location, and with the same cooperating teacher(s) as the planned student teaching semester. Depending on the intended licensure area, these pre-student teaching classes are to be taken one semester before student teaching:

5. Upon completion of all required courses, a minimum of 300 hours of documented field experience, approval of the Student Teaching Application, and successful completion of the pre-student teaching methods course(s), the candidate completes his/her student teaching semester. Working in cooperation with the Education Placement Office, each licensure candidate is regularly observed by a university supervisor, in addition to his/her assigned cooperating teacher. Throughout the Teacher Preparation Program, and especially during the student teaching semester, the Ohio Educator Standards are utilized to evaluate the student teacher’s preparation, classroom practices, and professionalism. A professional e-portfolio is developed to document achievement in each Ohio Educator Standards and is aligned with the Division of Education Candidate Proficiencies. The licensure candidate normally registers for two courses in fulfillment of the student teaching requirement: a seminar (3 credit hours) and the student teaching experience itself (3 credit hours). The specific courses are listed below:

6. Successful completion of the Teacher Preparation Program and student teaching includes the licensure candidate’s passing the Praxis tests in his/her concentration areas. Each candidate is required to take the Principles of Learning & Teaching (PLT) Test AND the test(s) associated with his/her specialization area(s). The Education Placement Office can provide additional Praxis registration information. Passing all tests associated with the intended licensure area is required by the Ohio Department of Education, regardless of completed course work, as a condition for state approval for initial licensure.

7. A candidate may elect to expand his/her teaching credentials by adding a reading endorsement to his/her license.

8. Upon completion of the licensure program, candidates often elect to complete their Master of Arts in Education requirements immediately. Others choose to obtain teaching positions, and then complete their remaining courses, as required by the Ohio Department of Education. Those interested in completing the Masters of Arts in Education program AND licensure courses simultaneously are required to fulfill a separate set of course requirements. See the Dean of Graduate Studies in Education for additional information about the Master of Arts in Education program.
