About The Program
Teaching is a profession with many career options – and you can explore them at Wake Tech!
From creating nurturing environments to meet the developmental needs of very young children to providing dynamic classroom instruction for students from Kindergarten to 12th grade, we have programs to prepare you for an incredibly rewarding career.
If you’re interested in working in childcare, we offer a variety of early childhood education options. You can pursue short-term training and certification for employment or work toward a diploma or associate degree.
If you want to become a licensed teacher, we offer the Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education Birth-K Licensure, Associate in Arts in Teacher Preparation and the Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation, which offer students opportunities to transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree with teacher licensure.
