Are you interested in sharing your industry expertise by teaching in a career and technical education (CTE) program? Clackamas provides a Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) approved teacher preparation program for CTE licensure in all six CTE career areas.

Oregon's Career Areas include

  • Agriculture, food and natural resources systems

  • Health and biomedical sciences

  • Human resources

This program meets the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) professional development requirements for industry experts seeking an Oregon Restricted or Preliminary CTE license to teach in secondary CTE (middle and high school) programs. It also provides professional development for post-secondary CTE (community college) faculty and instructors teaching in registered apprenticeships to improve teaching skills and understanding of the learning process. This certificate provides individuals with educational foundations in classroom and program management and develops skills needed to meet the needs of diverse students and to integrate developmentally appropriate and culturally competent instructional strategies.
