Guest Teacher/Substitute Teacher Training

  • Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12 offers Guest Teacher/Substitute Teacher Training for 25 school districts and 2 career-technology schools across Adams, Franklin, and York County and all Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12 special education classrooms.

    Individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree in any field of study are eligible to apply to become substitute teachers. The PA Department of Education (PDE) allows school districts and intermediate units to apply for emergency certifications for qualified individuals. Individuals who complete substitute teacher training requirements are eligible to substitute in LIU 12 classrooms and participating school districts in the area.

    LIU 12’s substitute teacher training program, which includes an online training course, requires a payment of $75.00 and pre-employment paperwork (valid clearances, TB test and physical, etc.). 

    To begin the process, please complete the LIU Guest Teacher/Substitute Teaching Form. 

    Once the LIU Guest Teacher/Substitute Teaching Form response has been received and reviewed by the LIU Human Resources Department, individuals will be contacted via phone and/or email with additional information and next steps. 

     For more information, please call (717) 624-6467 or email
