Offering a Robust Pathway for Novice Teachers
Clients often approach CTAPP with a general idea of what they need, and many others need help pinpointing the catalyst for change. We use CTAPP's Teacher Preparation Model to drive our programmatic changes at EPP partners. Comprised of 8 tenets, the Teacher Preparation Model articulates high-quality structures for ACPs ranging from coursework and coaching to partnership collaboration and teacher educator training.
Transformation Planning & Leadership Development
CTAPP technical assistance offerings range from strategic planning sessions to leadership development for EPP management and teacher educators. Through a data-driven approach, CTAPP crafts an individualized transformation plan tailored to the needs of each EPP. Technical assistance programming serves to achieve those individualized goals articulated and agreed upon by EPP leaders.
Inaugural Cohort of EPPs
CTAPP kicked off its Transformation Fellowship in 2020 aimed at helping Texas-based alternative certification programs improve their teacher preparation. Since then, a total of four educator preparation programs have partnered with CTAPP as Transformation Fellows.

CTAPP collaborates with Transformation Fellows to determine a unique plan to tackle, scale, and sustain teacher preparation programming. Fellows enjoy leadership coaching, strategic planning, and tactical workshopping. We also conduct and hybrid (virtual/in-person) site visits to co-investigate problems of practice together with EPP leaders, teacher educators, and PK-12 LEA partners from school districts.
