K-12 Educator Professional Development

Providing exceptional teacher education since 1917.

Teachers are always learning


Since 1917, UCLA Extension Education has provided staff development, in-service, and professional outreach to practitioners at all levels of education—preschool, elementary, secondary, adult, and higher education.

We partner with UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS) to create a community of learning and action with a social justice emphasis. Its members are scholars, practitioners, teachers, agenda setters, and public intellectuals who research, teach, and prepare practitioners and researchers in learning and information fields in an environment of multiple constituencies. The shared goal is to enhance the life experience of all individuals through inquiry, professional practice, and policy that leads to equitable access to quality education.
