Education Futures

Scaling Teacher Preparation Pipeline Programs

The intent of the Education Futures Project is to launch a statewide effort to incorporate Teacher Preparation Pipeline (TPP) programs throughout California Community Colleges, to successfully recruit, train and support teachers to ameliorate critical shortages in STEM, CTE and other high need sectors, as well as to diversify and align education pathways. Teacher Preparation Pipeline programs have been prioritized by the CCCCO for use of Strong Workforce funds, and are one of the five projects in-common targeted to receive 10% of Regional share allocation for Task Force recommendations and to achieve the outcomes for the Strategic Vision for Success.
