Final Clinical Experience / Education Internships

Final Clinical Experience

Co-teaching in student teaching is the clinical, capstone experience for all Avila teacher candidates. Teacher candidates are placed in school districts of the student's choice (if possible) to collaboratively plan lessons and apply teaching skills under the supervision and assistance of a cooperating teacher. All final clinical experiences are supervised by an Avila University supervisor. Graduate Certification teacher candidates complete a total of 12 weeks to fulfill their requirements for final clinical experience.


Internship/Advanced Internship teacher candidates are graduate certification students who are employed as full-time lead teachers in the proper certification area (content and grade level).  Avila University does not find jobs for individuals who want to intern.
