About this program.

Over two academic years, candidates engage in a CTC-approved individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support, and professional learning, which becomes a vehicle for the growth and self-reflection required of successful teachers in our state’s increasingly diverse classrooms. If you do not have a potential Induction Site-Based Mentor at your school, for a fee, the university will match you with a mentor based on the credential you are clearing. That fee will be represented by way of your enrollment in Teacher Induction Mentor Support A, B, C and D.

If you have a potential Induction Site-Based Mentor available, please view the Teacher Induction - California Clear Credential (School Mentor Track) Specialization.

This program is completed 100% online.
