The Teacher Placement Office
With more than 20 years of experience in educational placement, we can assure you that the chances of a candidate being interviewed and hired are significantly greater when we can provide school administrators with a complete credential file. Therefore, if you want to get hired, you should submit a complete credential file that includes copies of the following:
YOUR CREDENTIAL FILE REPRESENTS YOU - MAKE IT PROFESSIONAL!
The competition is tough for a teaching job. Give yourself every chance to be considered for positions. Research shows that employers screen through applications/resumes/credential files quickly at first to see if there is something there to catch their interest. You know the saying, "You only have one chance to make a good first impression". Take that advice seriously when it comes to your credential file. Make it PROFESSIONAL!
All schools are now going paperless and request credential files be uploaded or emailed as attachments. It is in your best interest to convert your documents to electronic documents. The most commonly accepted documents are MSWord and .PDF files.
Making an electronic file is probably easier than you think. If you have your own printer/scanner, you can scan the pages and save them into MSWord or .PDF format. If you do not have a scanner, you can take all of your documents to a store such as FedEx/Kinkos, Office Depot, Office Max, etc, and have them scan the file for you. They will scan your documents and convert them into .PDF documents and save them to a cd or flash drive, or email to you. It is recommended that you save each document individually. Multiple pages documents, such as transcripts should all be in one .PDF document. You then take the cd/flash drive (or go to your email) and save the .PDF documents on your computer. You can then email the documents to us. You will also have documents that you can email to schools or upload to on-line applications.
CREDENTIAL DOCUMENTS – Sending to us
It is best to upload your documents with the application. If you have documents to add to your file after submitting the application, they may be sent by email or postal mail.
Emailed documents accepted in MSWord or .PDF format.
We do not accept faxed documents.
