UCLA Extension's English Learner Added Authorization (CTEL/CLAD) program is for credentialed teachers seeking a Crosscultural Language and Academic Development (CLAD) certification approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).
This six-course, fully-online program is designed to develop the capacity of teachers to effectively teach K-12 subject matter to English language learners in public, charter, and private schools. Upon completion, candidates are recommended to the CTC for the CLAD authorization.
For individuals without a California teaching credential, including teachers residing outside of California, courses may be taken for professional development.
The CLAD through CTEL program consists of an orientation course, four core courses, and a final portfolio course.
This program is offered 100% online.
