Western Governors University Host Teacher (HT) Qualifications
WGU’s intent in co-selecting a host teacher with our P-12 partners is to ensure that the individual has the time, experience, desire, and skill necessary to mentor a pre-service teacher. Host teachers are required to have a minimum of three years of teaching experience, five years preferred, with two or more years teaching in the current school. WGU’s minimum requirements are listed below. We hope to collaborate on a mutually beneficial student teaching placement which provides our teacher candidate with the necessary experiences in which to develop and demonstrate a positive impact on student learning. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for additional information.
As verified by the principal and/or district, the identified host teacher meets these minimum requirements:
*Host teachers in California must hold at least a Clear Credential to qualify as a host teacher for a WGU teacher candidate. A Preliminary Credential will not meet host teacher qualifications in California, regardless of years of teaching experience.
