|Massachusetts Licensure Information|
NTR has been approved by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to grant an Initial License (grades 8-12 in English, History, Math and Science - Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) to teacher candidates who have successfully completed our program. It is important to note that a Master's Degree is NOT required to obtain an initial license. All teaching licenses require a candidate to have taken and passed the MTEL Communication and Literacy exam as well as relevant subject exams.
There are four types of teacher licenses currently available in the state:
An initial license is valid for five years and renewable through the state for another five years. There are a variety of paths that a teacher may take to move from an initial license to a professional license.
