The GaTAPP Cohort for 2023 is now FULL. 

The next application window will open October 1, 2023. 

The Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) is a classroom-based teacher preparation option for individuals who have the basic qualifications to teach early childhood, middle grades, secondary or P-12 education but have not completed a teacher preparation program. The program is not intended to replace regular college teacher education programs. It is, instead, an alternative option for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher but did not complete teacher education requirements as part of their degree programs. GaTAPP equips teacher candidates with the skills to ensure a reasonable expectation of initial success in their classrooms and puts in place a supervised candidateship/induction program that will help them move toward subsequent mastery of teaching. 

Please Note:

The process for selecting potential candidates for Metro RESA GaTAPP is specifically designed for the METRO RESA AREA ONLY. Applicants will not find the specific requirements listed on any other website, including the GaPSC site. Most GaTAPP programs have specific requirements unique to their program.
