The Greenville Alternative Teacher Education (GATE) program is an exciting, innovative, new pathway to a career in teaching. The first district-based, job-embedded alternative certification program in South Carolina is designed to increase the number of exceptional math, science, English, social studies, world language and business teachers in Greenville County middle level and secondary schools.
In partnership with Public Education Partners (PEP), GATE provides rigorous preparation in best educational practices to selected individuals who have a strong commitment to teach and a bachelor’s degree with a major or an emphasis in the specific teaching field. Similar to a medical residency model, the program will fully integrate content, best teaching practices and professional knowledge within a supportive, authentic school teaching experience.
