The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) is responsible for issuing teaching certificates to potential teachers in the state. If you have not attended a college or university teacher preparation program, you will need to apply for a Transition to Teaching Permit. In order to be eligible for a Transition to Teaching Permit, you must first meet one of the IDOE-approved admission options:
Elementary Education Requirements (K-6)
P-12 Education Requirements (P-12)
Secondary Education Requirements (5-12)
You must then enroll in an IDOE approved Transition to Teaching teacher preparation program such as Indiana Teachers of Tomorrow.
