Accepting Applications!

We are now accepting applications for the Spring 2023 cohorts!

Old Dominion University has offered the Career Switcher Program on behalf of the Virginia Department of Education since 2000.

Varied program formats allow for extremely accelerated training while accommodating participants who wish to remain employed in their current jobs while pursuing licensure. In addition, candidates are placed in school classrooms where they observe instruction and are given the opportunity to make contacts in school districts while gaining knowledge about teacher responsibilities and instructional strategies.
