NCCCS Teacher Preparation

  1. 1. Building A Diverse Teacher Education Pipeline: The Role of Community Colleges in North Carolina 1 Lisa Eads, Ph.D. Associate Vice President of Programs
  2. 2. Ready to Serve 2 With 58 colleges serving 100 counties, the community colleges are in the best position to quickly build a teacher pipeline in underserved areas and attract a more diverse teacher candidates. The specialized transfer degrees are designed as a seamless pathway from high school to community college to a four-year institution.
  3. 3. Recruiting Diverse Teacher Education Candidates • Community colleges have the best chance of helping rural counties “grow their own” teachers. • Community colleges are more accessible to students in rural areas of the state. Additionally, the low cost of community college tuition helps to remove/reduce the financial barrier of attending college. 3
  4. 4. Recruiting Diverse Teacher Education Candidates • Our goal is to recruit teachers from underrepresented populations and those who are more likely to settle near home. • Community colleges already have a similar model in place to increase nursing graduates in underserved regions through a program of dual admission to the community college and university. 4
  5. 5. New Teacher Preparation Degrees and Pathways • Associate in Arts in Teacher Preparation (AATP) (A1010T) • Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation (ASTP) (A1040T) • Career and College Promise Associate in Arts in Teacher Preparation (P1012T) • Career and College Promise Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation (P1042T) 5

  9. 9. Career and College Promise Section 7.1A of S.L. 2011-0145 The purpose of Career and College Promise is to offer structured opportunities for qualified high school students to dually enroll in community college courses that provide pathways that lead to a certificate, diploma, degree, or State/Industry recognized credentials as well as provide entry-level job skills – tuition-free.

  13. 13. Partnering with High Schools 13 Community colleges already have strong relationships with the public schools through the growing popularity of Career and College Promise (CCP), which provides nearly 60,000 high school students with community college courses annually. This program enhances our ability to reach into high schools and recruit future teachers.
  14. 14. Pathways for High School Students 14 A new journey to becoming a teacher could start in high school – tuition free. A student could take courses at a community college as a part of a teacher education pathway for high school students through Career and College Promise (CCP). The AATP/ASTP pathways are approximately the first year of an associate degree. Students can continue to take courses tuition free in the AATP/ASTP degrees while still in high school after completion of their pathway courses in CCP. Students could also choose to take additional courses after high school graduation to complete remaining courses in the AATP/ASTP degrees and apply for financial aid to cover the cost of remaining courses. The final part of the program would be provided by the four-year institution, online or in the local community. Along the way, students could have advisers at both the community college and university.

  16. 16. Partnering with Universities 16 Community colleges have solid transfer agreements with UNC and private universities. This puts community colleges in a unique position at the center of what could be a new, accelerated teacher training model, drawing on the strengths of all sectors. Our goal is to design the degree program as an affordable option, attracting young people into the teaching profession with the help of scholarships and other support.
  17. 17. Pathways for Adult Students 17 A new journey to becoming a teacher would start by enrolling in the AATP or ASTP degree and apply for financial aid. The final part of the program would be provided by the four- year institution, online or in the local community. Along the way, students could have advisers at both the community college and university.
  18. 18. AATP/ASTP Articulation Agreements 18 These new transfer degrees require additional agreements on common courses among the community colleges and universities. The new articulation agreement will move forward as educators and policy makers keep the end goal in mind — a robust, diverse pool of future teachers to serve all geographic areas of the state.
  19. 19.
