Continuing education for teachers
When you became a teacher, you made a personal commitment to lifelong learning — not just for your students, but for yourself as well. There is always more to know. Always room to grow.
That's why exceptional educators turn to University of Phoenix for continuing education
To help you stay abreast of the latest instructional strategies and methods, we offer a broad catalog of individual courses selected from our master's degree programs, as well as continuing teacher education and test-preparation courses. Earn the credits you need for potential endorsement, teaching certificate renewals, or simply to gain new skills and insight.
At University of Phoenix, you'll join a dynamic community of teachers and administrators who are lifelong learners, too. Courses are taught by College of Education faculty — seasoned P-12 educators with master's- and doctorate-degrees. That means class assignments bridge academic theory with real-world application and relate directly to your job, and to the needs of your school community.
