Top five reasons to be employed as a substitute instructor in the CT Technical Education and Career System:

  • We value substitutes.  They play a key role in the education process.
  • Substitute daily rate of pay is $155.00.
  • Great students and staff.
  • Seventeen schools across Connecticut that currently employ substitutes.
  • 30 technology/trade areas.

Substitute academic applicants must submit a CT-HR-12 application form, be fingerprinted, have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree. Please submit either a copy of your degree or unofficial transcript.

After the application and a copy of your degree or unofficial transcript have been received, a mandatory addendum form will be e-mailed to you by a representative of the Bureau of Human Resources that must be completed and returned to Human Resources. The Educational Employer Verification Form will be sent to you if you have current or previous employment in a position that you had contact with children. This form needs to be filled out by you and sent to all places of employment that you had contact with children. Also, the DCF Background Check Form will also be sent to you to fill out.

Substitute trade applicants must submit a CT-HR-12 application form, be fingerprinted and have a minimum of four (4) years of trade experience as evidenced on the application.

After the application is received, a mandatory addendum will be e-mailed to you by a representative of the Bureau of Human Resources that must be completed and returned to Human Resources. The Educational Employer Verification Form will be sent to you if you have current or previous employment in a position that you had contact with children. This form needs to be filled out by you and sent to all places of employment that you had contact with children. Also, the DCF Background Check Form will also be sent to you to fill out.

Complete the CT-HR 12 application form and bring it together with the required documentation to the school business manager. Reference the list of CTECS schools and find the business manager located in the staff directory of the school you are interested in substitute teaching at.

The business managers at the school will provide you with a fingerprint packet that includes the instructions for obtaining fingerprints.  The Connecticut Technical Education and Career System does not share fingerprint results with any school districts, nor do we accept fingerprint results from other school districts.
