Expand your teaching responsibilities and skills, or begin pursuing a teaching degree with an online certificate in education and teaching. Online education certificates are offered to students of all teaching levels. Certain programs, like early childhood education, special education and educational administration, are designed for students who are already instructors and want to switch grade levels, curriculums or student demographics. It also applies to teachers who want to advance to administrative and leadership positions. Students who do not have any teaching experience can obtain a teacher aide certificate and some educational technology certificates, in order to observe teachers in the classroom and practice instructing students by yourself.

Students in an education and teaching certificate program will learn about theories, teaching principles, ethics and classroom management, as well as education leadership, current technology and creating lesson plans. Depending on your level of education and experience, completing an education and teaching certificate may qualify you to work as a special education teacher, a school administrator, a principal and even a superintendent.
