The LEAD (Licensure in Education for Adults with Degrees) Program was instituted to meet a growing need for credentialed teachers in Ohio. Individuals who already have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college are eligible to add a teaching license to his/her credentials. Specific program requirements vary by subject area and most LEAD Program students complete teacher preparation coursework in four or five semesters while attending classes full-time. The LEAD Program Coordinator will provide assistance in planning each student's particular preparatory program. Walsh University has been granted authority from the Ohio Department of Education to recommend individuals for licensure in Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Intervention Specialist Education, Intervention Specialist Education, Middle Childhood Education, Adolescent and Young Adult Education, and Reading Endorsements.
