Virginia is in critical need of teachers of students who are blind and visually impaired (TBVIs). School systems across Virginia are reporting multiple job openings for TBVIs, as are private contracting agencies and services.
The Virginia Consortium for Teacher Preparation in Vision Impairment offers a grant that covers up to 60% of tuition for qualified Virginia applicants who wish to become TBVIs. Our Consortium consists of three Virginia universities, George Mason University, Radford University, and Old Dominion University, that work together to train TBVIs across Virginia. We offer a variety of degree options to meet prospective TBVIs wherever they are at in their career goals, from undergraduate, to masters, and graduate certificate.
Applications for the Fall term are still being accepted. To learn more, please visit www.kihd.gmu.edu/vi or contact your local university faculty member for more information: https://education.gmu.edu/special-education/vi-consortium/contacts
