Peer Review - Alternative Route to Licensure

Vermont offers an "alternate route to licensure" for those who have not completed a traditional educator preparation program at a college or university. Vermont's alternate route is  License by Evaluation or "Peer Review." Every Peer Review candidate completes a portfolio, which  is reviewed by experienced teachers culminating in an interview.

Acceptance into the Peer Review program requires:

  • A candidate must hold a B.A./ B.S./ B.F.A. Official transcripts may be sent to AOE.Transcripts@vermont.gov.
  • All Praxis Core (or alternate test scores) and Praxis II (if applicable to endorsement sought) successfully passed and scores submitted to Agency of Education.  Please see testing requirements
  • A current resume - please include relevant teaching experience.

Peer Review Clinics

Attending a clinic is a requirement of the portfolio. Clinic attendees will receive a certificate of attendance to submit with their completed portfolios. Candidates may apply to Peer Review prior to attending a clinic.

To register for a Peer Review Clinic, send an email with the date and time you would like attend to AOE.PeerReview@vermont.gov. Listing first and second choices helps ensure that you get into at least one session you can attend. Space is limited. You will receive a confirmation email when you have been registered for a clinic.
