Hiring Process

Participant Eligibility and Selection

The SVA Program is committed to training individuals who have a passion for teaching and learning.

Applications are reviewed from candidates who:
  • are recent graduates of a New York City CTE High School or comprehensive CTE program;
  • are nominated by their trade teacher and selected by a committee at the school led by the assistant principal of CTE;
  • have an outstanding academic record with eligibility for admission to the City University of New York (CUNY) either by virtue of Regents test scores, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, or passing CUNY's assessment test.

When can I apply?

At the beginning of each recruitment cycle, application forms are sent to CTE schools. Priority is given to subject areas of current or foreseeable teacher shortage. Selection of applicants in each high school is done by an ad hoc committee comprised of trade teachers, building administrators, and representatives of the teachers' union.

Applications are reviewed as needed. For more information, please email [email protected] via link here.
