North Carolina Model Teacher Education Consortium


Established in 1989, the North Carolina Model Teaching Education Consortium(NCMTEC) comprises a number of public school systems, community colleges, colleges, and universities, along with the NC Department of Public Education and State Board of Education.

The consortium seeks to increase the number of highly qualified teachers – especially minority teachers – in North Carolina’s public schools by providing advice, professional development, and financial assistance to employees of consortium partner organizations who are actively pursuing their first degree in education/initial licensure; clearing a lateral, emergency, or provisional license; or seeking a graduate degree in education.

Consortium services include tuition reimbursement for undergraduate and graduate education courses, reimbursement for college textbooks, stipends for teacher assistants and other paraprofessionals who are required to take leaves-of-absence from their jobs while fulfilling student-teaching requirements, and test preparation seminars for Praxis I Pre-professional Skills Tests and Praxis II Specialty Area Tests.
