Below you will find the supplementary resources for the Readiness Application for Teacher Preparation Programs seeking partnership for CTAPP's Transformation Fellowship. As a reminder, you may access the Application and Budget Template at this link.
EPP and CTAPP Commitments: This document is aligned to the Quality Objectives referenced in the Readiness Application. Within each Quality Objective, you'll find the tenets of our Teacher Preparation Model and the commitments that Transformation Fellows will make upon joining our cohort. These items are broken down by EPP and CTAPP commitments--which can be used to complete the columns of the Readiness Application that ask for specific commitments from your program and what supports you request from CTAPP.
The Educator Preparation Program Excellence Rubric (TEPPER): This document is also aligned to the Quality Objectives in the Readiness Application. The TEPPER is meant to provide context on the various outcomes and indicators within the application, some of which may be vague. The strands of the TEPPER should provide a vision for your EPP's areas of strength and opportunities for improvement, which you are asked to provide on the Readiness Application.
Note: Though you are encouraged to use language from or reference these two documents, you are not required to do so. If you have any clarifying questions about how to best incorporate elements of these resources into your Readiness Application, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We are also sharing a recording of our 3/30 Webinar. In this pre-recorded webinar, we discuss best practices and success criteria for each section of the Readiness Application. The Webinar ends with Q&A from various EPPs, which may be helpful as you complete your application.
