What transcripts will I need to submit, and when should I order them?
Photocopies of transcripts must be received with an adjunct applicant’s application. If an applicant is selected for certification, he or she will be required to have official transcripts sent via email from the institution or via mail to the Human Resources Department. To be considered "official,” these transcripts must be received by the Human Resources Department directly from the institution attended. Transcripts provided by the applicant in a sealed envelope are not considered official. Official transcripts are required in accordance with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in order to issue the IRSC teaching certificate.
I turned in my employment application for an adjunct position. Why have I not had any response?
Adjunct positions remain posted for the entire school year. Applications are reviewed for current and foreseeable needs.
I already have a state teaching certification. Do I need to do more?
All full- and part-time faculty at IRSC must complete the IRSC teaching certification process in order to teach at IRSC. The state teaching certification utilized in the K–12 arena is not applicable at the college level. However, if you are selected for employment at one of our charter schools (Clark/Indiantown) you will be required to have an FLDOE teaching certification.
I turned in my application for a posted adjunct position, but when I contacted the department, I was told there was not an opening available.
The adjunct disciplines posted on our website are listed with an ongoing need in order to build an adjunct applicant pool, and there may or may not be a current opening at any given time. The department reviews applications and contacts applicants for interviews when there is a need in the classroom.
I have never taught but would love to teach. Would I be considered as an adjunct without prior teaching experience?
Prior teaching experience is preferred but not a requirement for some of our positions. Refer to the position descriptions to review the qualifications, skills and requirements for the discipline(s) of interest. Some instructional areas that require one year of prior proven teaching experience are the college preparatory areas of Developmental Education and the Educational Preparation Institute (EPI).
