The New York City Teaching Fellows (NYCTF) and New York City Teaching Collaborative (NYCTC) are alternative teacher preparation programs leading to New York State teacher certification. These programs are a collaboration among the New York City Department of Education, CUNY, and certain private universities in New York City. Following pre-service coursework offered by the partner university and the NYC DOE, participants teach full-time in high needs New York City public schools, while continuing to study at their university, and undergoing continuous in-school supervision and professional development. Tuition costs are subsidized by the NYCDOE. Upon successful completion of the two-year program, teachers earn a master’s degree and are eligible for New York State initial teacher certification.
