Educator Licensure Programs

Teach in Mass.

Our work begins with agreements: shared goals and mutual accountability. CES Values

Have you ever dreamed of making a difference in a young person’s life? Can you imagine the reward that comes from teaching a child with a learning disability to read for the first time? Are you excited by the thought that you could inspire others about a subject that you love, such as a math or science?

In as little as 18 months, you can start on the path to a rewarding new career in education.

Why earn your teacher, principal/assistant principal or supervisor/director license with CES?

Approved and accredited by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and serving students all across the Commonwealth with hybrid online programs, the Collaborative for Educational Services Licensure Programs are a quick, practical, and affordable route to your license as a teacher or principal, supervisor, director in Massachusetts.

Collaborative courses are also a great way to earn Professional Development Points and, through our partnership with Fitchburg State University, our students are earning graduate credit or working toward Master's Degrees and Certificates of Advanced Graduate Study.

CES courses are convenient, intellectually exciting, and taught by knowledgeable professionals with years of experience in their fields. Program participants enjoy a small-school learning environment, which means they receive greater support from both academic advisors and fellow classmates.

Graduates of the CES Licensure Programs work in and come from districts all across Massachusetts. To see a list of where our graduates work, click here.
