The Georgia Teacher Alternative Preparation Program (Georgia TAPP) 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. It is an alternative option for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher, and it is used to address teacher shortage issues or fill high-need areas. Georgia TAPP equips teacher candidates with the skills to ensure initial success in their classrooms and puts in place a supervised candidateship/induction program that will help them move toward subsequent mastery of teaching.
