Raleigh, NC -- College graduates interested in becoming high school science, math and technology teachers now have a new option for certification.

Applications are available until April 1 for a lateral-entry teacher certification program approved by the State Board of Education.
The North Carolina New Schools Project is one of 30 organizations nationwide awarded five-year grants from the US.

The Department of Education want to recruit and train qualified mid-career professionals and recent graduates who didn't study education in college.

Candidates in the tuition-free, 15-month program will receive a year of on-the-job training combined with seminars and online coursework.

The goal is to prepare 48 teachers a year to teach science, math and technology in districts with the highest rates of under-qualified teachers.
