The PCOE Leadership and Learning Collaborative (LLC) Education Specialist Mild/Moderate Intern Program, is accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and is designed to prepare future education specialists in Placer County.
The Preservice requirement is six months long with cohorts beginning each November. The two-year Intern Program follows the preservice and combines practical, relevant coursework with on-site support provided through a collaborative partnership between the PCOE Learning and Leadership Collaborative and each participating school district. We recognize that our candidates bring a wealth of experiences to the program and have designed our courses to link educational theory with best instructional practices.
Our teachers are employed as Intern teachers during the day and attend credential classes two days a week in evenings or weekends while receiving ongoing coaching from a District Coach mentor, course instructors, and faculty supervisors.
All candidates in Intern Programs must meet the same standards for teacher preparation as those found in a traditional college or university setting. This includes the demonstration of subject matter proficiency and completion of all prerequisites and coursework.
This credential program includes English Learners Authorization and Autism Authorization.
