Options for Earning a General Education (MS/SS) Clear Teaching Credential


Individuals holding a Preliminary General Education (Multiple or Single Subject) or Preliminary Education Specialist teaching credential are required by Education Code §44259(c) (2) to complete a Commission-approved Induction program to earn the professional clear teaching credential. It is the responsibility of the new teacher to earn a clear teaching credential within a five-year period from the issuance of the preliminary teaching credential. The method intended by statute for new teachers to earn a clear teaching credential is completion of a Commission-approved Induction program.


An Induction program is designed to support and guide the new teacher in his or her teaching assignment by incorporating local school and district goals under the guidance and assistance of a support provider who has deep knowledge of the local school, district and community as well as of new teacher development. Each individual holding a Preliminary teaching credential should be supported and mentored during the first two years of teaching. All Commission-approved General Education & Education Specialist Induction programs are listed on the Commission’s Approved Programs web page. A drop down list allows for filtering so only those institutions sponsoring Induction programs are listed ( Currently there are over 156 Commission-approved Induction programs [California State University (CSU), 1 University of California (UC), 3 private colleges and universities, and 152 sponsored by local education agencies].


The following options are available to Preliminary General Education (Multiple or Single Subject) Credential Holders:


1. Enroll in and complete an Induction program sponsored by, or in partnership with the employing district or county office of education.

2. If the individual’s employer is not sponsoring or partnering with a Commission-approved Induction program, the following alternatives are available for earning the general education clear credential.


  1. Enroll in and complete an Induction program that is offered by a college or university.


  1. Enroll in and complete an Induction program sponsored by a neighboring district or a county office of education if the program accepts participants who are not employed by a partner district.

3.  Complete a General Education Clear Credential program


What is CTIP?


The California Teacher Induction Program (CTIP) formerly known as “Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) Induction” is a program sponsored the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) designed to support the professional development of newly-credentialed Credential Candidates and fulfill the requirements for the California Professional Clear Multiple/ Single Subject, and Education Specialist Instruction Credential.  The CTIP provides formative assessment, individualized support, and advanced content for newly-credentialed teachers.  Senate Bill 2042 identified it as the only pathway to a clear credential.  While the name changed in 2014, the intent and purpose remains the same.
