Career-Technical Workforce Development Supplemental Teaching License

A supplemental license for teaching in a career-technical workforce development program may be issued at the request of an employing Ohio superintendent to the holder of a standard license.

Note: Once an individual has been issued a supplemental teaching license for a particular licensure area or teaching field, it will be necessary to complete the supplemental licensure program or the equivalent and be issued a standard teaching license in that area, prior to requesting a supplemental teaching license in another area.
