ArPEP – DMESC

Arkansas Professional Educator Pathway (ArPEP)

The Arkansas Professional Educator Pathway (ArPEP), is an affordable two-year, work-based,  alternative certification program that is administered by the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education. Enrollment in this program allows a candidate with a bachelor’s degree or higher to be licensed and employed as a classroom teacher while completing the necessary requirements for a Standard Arkansas Teaching License. ArPEP’s goal is to prepare day one-ready teachers to meet the growing demand of the teacher pipeline in Arkansas.  The primary objective of ArPEP is to train future educators on how to:

  • build classroom communities
  • design effective lesson plans
  • implement evidence-based instructional strategies, and
  • use assessments to facilitate student learning
