California Community Colleges (CCC) - System
California Community College Chancellor's Office
Teacher Preparation Centers
The CCC is the largest system of higher education in the nation, with more than 2.1 million students attending 114 colleges. Twenty-three campuses are funded by the CCC Chancellor’s Office’s Education Futures grants, and many more are supported by regional community college consortia and local colleges to recruit, prepare, and support future teachers. Community College TPPs are expanding pathways to education careers, especially for STEM, career technical education and K-12 hard-to-staff areas. TPPs work closely in regional communities of practice to align with K12 and postsecondary education pathways. They collaborate to provide critical services, including advising, counseling, transfer support, mentoring, field work, dual enrollment, test preparation and information on financial aid for students exploring the teaching profession. The TPP Website, teacherprep.org, includes a locator map and contact information for community college TPP programs across the state. Future teachers can find much support and assistance at the CCC campuses. Courses are affordable and access is not complicated. Begin your teaching career today at a California community college!
