MCLA Education Department Offers MTEL Prep Courses

October 21, 2022

Those interested in obtaining teacher licensure in Massachusetts are invited to register for MCLA’s Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) preparation courses.  

The courses will be held online on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 12 & 13, and cover Communication and Literacy and Foundations of Reading.  

Communications and Literacy: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  
Foundations of Reading: 1 to 4 p.m.  

Each semester the College’s Education Department offers classes to prepare students for the MTEL.

Passing the MTEL is a requirement for teacher licensure in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.   

The course is $50 per course for non-MCLA students. Register online at, email, or call (413) 662-5575 for more information.
