The CTE Credential Program at UCLA Extension is designed for qualified industry professionals who have received offers of employment to teach specific courses requiring a CTE credential. Your school district is an essential partner in this process. Plan to meet with your school employer to confirm your teaching position, identify your industry sector, and agree to program mentorship expectations. UCLA Extension does not advise candidates prior to these confirmations.
How to Apply
Applicants must complete each of the following steps in sequence:
- Meet with your school employer, confirm a teaching position, determine the appropriate industry sector for that position, and agree to program mentorship expectations.
- Determine your eligibility for the CTE credential in a specific industry sector.
- Submit completed work verification form(s) to the Upload page for review.
- Wait. Once our office confirms your eligibility, you can proceed to the final step. Apply to the CTE credential program at UCLA Extension and receive a recommendation for your preliminary credential.
