Project Description

Year 3 RJV

The Teacher Preparation Pipeline (TPP) STEM/CTE Regional Joint Venture (RJV) aims to provide a model of teacher preparation that successfully recruits, trains and supports existing and future educators throughout the State of California. By creating a regional collaborative within the BACCC region to demonstrate shared practices, courses and strategies which serve both current and future teachers, the TPP RJV aspires to increase the number, quality and diversity of the teaching workforce in the region.

The SF Bay Area region represents 25% of the teaching vacancies in California. Addressing the teaching shortage through the development of collaborative practices and efforts can create models for other regions. Leveraging funds from the Education Futures grant through the CCCCO, the RJV’s are well positioned to increase the sustainability of community college-based teacher preparation efforts in California.

Develop regional courses, programs and pathways that address TOP CODE and data tracking needs

This RJV includes preparing teachers in Early Childhood Education, TK, K-12 and Community College, esp. CTE /STEM

Project Goals

  • Continue to work with Bay Area CSU’s on transfer and articulation efforts

  • Develop a regional marketing plan for teaching and education pathways in partnership with the BACCC Marketing RJV

  • A complete survey of Human Resources Departments in Community Colleges to assess faculty hiring and training needs (especially CTE ) in our region

Project Resources

  • Teacher Preparation Programs (TPP) in the Bay Area Community Colleges Consortium (BACCC) region. Link to https://www.tpp-baccc.org/

This is the first Sector brochure for Teaching Careers in California produced by COE! Many thanks to John Carrese for his support and expertise. All BACCC colleges can download the PDFs and post on their websites, print copies for their TPP partners, community leaders and colleges and utilize for funding proposals, presentations and college planning.

All Sectors Depend on Teachers to Grow!
