The Teacher Induction - California Clear Credential Program (School Mentor Track) for Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist teachers is designed to support the induction and ultimate retention of participating teachers as responsible members of the teaching profession. Successful completion of the program leads to a recommendation for a California Clear Credential from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). Over two academic years, participating teachers engage in an 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.
Participating teachers receive weekly guidance and support from an approved school mentor teacher who provides just-in-time help for teaching challenges and ongoing coaching and resources to help the new teacher meet their individual learning and growth plan goals. UCLA Extension’s program is fully aligned with the CTC’s revised teacher induction program standards (2016). A fully online format provides a flexible and convenient route for completing program coursework.
Please note that the induction program’s School Mentor Track will require a signed memorandum of understanding from a school administrator agreeing to abide by the stated conditions for mentor qualifications and other requirements.
