Seminar for spring 2015 clinical interns will be Monday, January 12 and Tuesday, January 13 in the Education Curriculum Lab from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Beginning this Fall 2014 semester, students must pass the appropriate Praxis II Content test to be recommended for graduation and for licensure.
All interns must complete a certain number of professional development hours and provide certificates of completion to the WBC Education Office before your license application can be sent to the Arkansas Department of Education. Students must complete two (2) hours for Parental Involvement (you may choose any two or more that total 2 hrs), two (2) hours for Teen Suicide Awareness and Prevention, and one (1) hour for Dyslexia .
The professional development training is found online on the Arkansas Ideas Portal. Go to the Non-Educator Login (found on the toolbar at the top of page) and create a new account. Once you have done so, click the link for "Courses", which is found on the left-hand side of the page under "Navigation". A list of professional development training courses will be brought up, and you will simply click on one to begin the training. Be sure to print out your certificate and turn it in to the Education Office.
Background checks will be conducted on each student who is completing their internship. The cost of the background check is $25 and will be added as a course fee to your account in the Business Office. This background check is for WTEP purposes only and is separate from the background check that must be completed for your licensure.
