Clinical Practice Support and Supervision

Clinical Practice Support and Supervision

Certificate Overview

How will you ensure that all support personnel for your candidates in Clinical Practice are prepared? The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) built an online training to help universities and districts satisfy the most recent Teaching Credential Program Standards and Teacher Induction Standards in California.

  • Preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist Credential Program Standard 3
  • Common Standard 3
  • Teacher Induction Program Standard 4

The CTC standards call for recent and ongoing training in various areas of coaching and classroom pedagogy for anyone supervising preservice teachers, intern teachers, and beginning teachers, such as:

  • Supervising Teachers hosting clinical practice candidates; 
  • University Supervisors of clinical practice candidates;
  • Clinical Supervisors and Site-based Mentors of Intern teachers; and
  • Induction and CTE Mentors of beginning teachers. 

About the Training

The training covers eight hours of content completed at your own pace over four weeks, completely online managed by a facilitator / instructor, and delivered in four distinct modules covering:

  • Necessary dispositions of mentors
  • Valuing adult learners
  • The skills of mentoring and coaching
  • Collaborative practice
  • Effective classroom systems
  • Teaching Performance Assessment
  • UDL, MTSS, and curricular adaptations

Each participant receives a certificate of completion that is portable as evidence of having been trained (for future service as a Supervising Teacher, Cooperating Teacher, or Mentor), and any university or district participating will have access to a growing database of Supervising Teachers and Mentors who have been trained (for accreditation purposes).
