NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS
In an effort to "Act as One" and unify our voices around education, The National Association of Community College Teacher Education Programs (NACCTEP) and the American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) are partnering in an 18 month pilot membership opportunity*.
We hosted an informational webinar regarding the pilot partnership on August 28, 2018 which can be viewed here. ------->
A membership application for your organization can be found online here - https://secure.aacte.org/apps/rl/res_get.php?fid=4123&ref=rl. By joining efforts community college members and their students will continue to be provided with the same resources and tools that NACCTEP has provided for over 15 years while also granting your organization access to AACTE resources such as:
- state and national advocacy alerts
- opportunities to participate collaboratively at an annual national conference Feb. 22-24, 2019 in Louisville, KY - more information
- participation in state-wide AACTE group meetings (some additional fees may apply)
- numerous other options that are listed on the application
NACCTEP is excited to participate in this partnership as it emphasizes the importance of collaboration between both our two and four-year programs to ensure equity and access for all students and diversifying the teacher workforce. The partnership also supports our overall completion agenda for our community college students.
If you have any questions about the partnership please don't hesitate to contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-517-8074.
THESE ARE EXCITING TIMES FOR OUR EDUCATOR PREPARATION PROGRAMS.
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL JOIN US IN THIS PILOT OPPORTUNITY!
*NACCTEP and AACTE will continue to examine the partnership over the next 18 months and evaluate next steps as we draw closer to the December 2019 deadline.
NACCTEP promotes the community college role in the recruitment, preparation, retention, and renewal of diverse PreK-12 educators. It was established to serve as a voice for community colleges in national discussions about teacher education preparation; diversifying the teacher pipeline by providing prepared, talented, licensed and effective individuals who support under represented student populations and to discuss barriers that impede their chances for success. NACCTEP supports institutions and individual members by enhancing current community college teacher education programs and serving as a resource for those looking to develop new programs; and serve as a liaison between community college teacher education programs and faculty.
