Did you know that anyone with two years of college experience can substitute teach in RI? Are you currently underemployed or unemployed, or simply looking for a change in your career?  Are you a college student taking a gap year, or looking for a flexible work schedule? 

Due to COVID-19, there is an increased need for high quality substitute teachers to be ready and willing to serve our schools and districts. Substitute teaching is challenging, and the current educational environments necessitates a new set of skills across multiple learning models. Still, there are strategies and practices new candidates can learn in advance of their placements to ensure success. 

The RI Department of Education announces a new FREE substitute teacher training program, with a goal to train upwards of 200 individuals to be substitute teachers this fall. In partnership with Highlander Institute, the Substitute Project will ensure that students receive an uninterrupted education supported by caring and qualified adults. 

Qualified Candidates will receive 10 hours of asynchronous course instruction which includes: 

  • Strategies and practices to support across different COVID-proof learning environments;
  • Exposure to topics such as child development, curriculum development, and engagement strategies; 
  • Classroom management training;
  • Understanding and ability to utilize most commonly used online and blended learning platforms; 
  • And much more!

Candidates who successfully complete the course will be included on a hiring list, shared with schools and districts across the state. Current substitute rates range from $90-$150 per day!
