"A" Licensure is the process through which an individual qualifies to be licensed by the State of North Carolina to teach in primary and secondary schools. All public schools and many private schools in North Carolina require their professional educators to hold this license.
If your career goal is to work as a professional educator in the public schools, you should complete an education program leading to "A" Licensure. If you plan to work outside North Carolina, check with the education department of that state to determine if your North Carolina license will be accepted.
