Educator licensing process streamlined

Pearson announced today a new Educator Licensure System (ELS) that automates and simplifies the management of state agencies’ licensure programs for teachers, principals, superintendents, and other administrators.

The new system is a cloud-based solution that integrates all of the data sources that a state uses for licensure requirements—exam services, background and fingerprinting providers, eTranscript solutions, and longitudinal data warehouses. Candidates complete applications using secure, browser-based access that streamlines the process of applying for licensure, enabling states to make it easier and more convenient to apply for work as an educator.
