Eligibility Requirements

beta-iconBlue Engine partners with school leaders, teachers, and Blue Engine Teaching Apprentices (BETAs) to create a powerful classroom environment for students in which teachers and BETAs teach together as a team, resulting in dramatic academic gains in gateway subjects. Blue Engine recruits, trains and matches a team of three BETAs with a certified lead teacher in English/Language Arts or Algebra in 8th, 9th or 10th grades. More educators in the classroom reduces the teacher to student ratio from about 1:30 to 1:6, enabling teachers to build authentic relationships with students, provides significantly more instructional hours during class and before/after school, and differentiates, individualizes and personalizes instruction. The teacher-BETA collaboration enables daily student-centered reflection and learning that improves teacher practice.

At the same time, Blue Engine’s hybrid model helps a diverse, local wave of educators enter the teaching profession through an apprenticeship (as a BETA and AmeriCorps member), teaching alongside a team for one or two years with the opportunity to earn their teaching credential in their second year through the Relay Graduate School of Education.

We’re excited you are considering joining the team as a Blue Engine Teaching Apprentice.
