Teacher Induction Program

California has a two-tiered credentialing system for teachers. Preliminary programs prepare candidates to obtain an initial teaching credential through successful completion of required coursework, fieldwork, and a performance demonstration of their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The second tier of preparation is a two-year job-embedded individualized induction program that is focused on extensive support and mentoring to new teachers in their first and second year of teaching.

The Foundation for Hispanic Education (TFHE) in partnership with the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) provides, at no cost to employees, a two-year Induction program for all new teachers looking to clear their preliminary California teaching credential.  

The primary objective at TFHE is for new teachers to receive support and coaching to prepare them to be more effective and successful in their classrooms.  The SCCOE Induction program provides a two-year, individualized, job embedded system of mentoring, support and professional learning.
