Substitute Teachers

We are very excited to offer new training for all of our Substitute Teachers in Camden County.  This will be mandatory training in order to be an approved sub for the 2020-21 school year.

The VIRTUAL training is offered by the App-Garden University. There are many benefits to you as a sub such as the ability to train anytime and anywhere you have access to internet. It is so important that we as a district keep you current on the board policies and procedures as well as giving you great tips and ideas for being a successful substitute teacher. This training is required of all subs in order for our district to meet compliance requirements.

Camden County Schools Substitute Teacher Orientation Training is intended for RETURNING substitute teachers…. who hold a teaching certificate or who are ETT (Effective Teacher Training) certified. This course is $14.00.

Camden County Schools Orientation with Effective Substitute Teacher Training v.22 is intended for the FIRST TIME substitute teachers….who do not have an active teaching license. This course is $ 29.00

In addition to your district’s courses there is an introduction video which explains how to navigate through the courses and how to print your certificate. Watch this video first!

Once you complete this training course you may print a certificate of completion to keep for your record. The district office will be sent a report of your completion and this will also be a record of your intent to sub this year.

You may review the course as many times as you feel necessary within your one year enrollment in the course which begins on the date of the purchase. Click on this link to purchase the Camden County Schools Substitute Teacher training


In addition to the virtual training, new substitutes should complete the Substitute Teacher Application and submit the application to the Human Resources Department.
