California Commission on Teacher Credentialing-approved Induction Programs

The School of Extended Education partners with schools and districts throughout California to provide graduate-level professional development credit for induction work done by beginning teachers or administrators and support providers.  Academic credit toward specific Brandman Master’s degree programs (listed below) may be awarded for successful completion of certain induction programs.

Induction Credit toward Master’s Degree

Brandman University has developed a pathway for teachers who successfully complete a CTC-approved BTSA induction, General Education Induction, or the Clear Education Specialist Induction program to receive a block credit grant towards a Master’s degree.

Up to 12 credits from BTSA or General Education Induction may be applied to the Master of Arts in Education, Teaching and Learning. This program is for educational professionals seeking to become transformational leaders and innovative teachers. Students will learn ground-breaking ideas and put them into practice immediately to transform their classrooms and the educational landscape in California.

Brandman University awards 6 semester credits towards the Advanced Methodology emphasis area for successful completion of an Education Specialist Clear Induction Program. The Education Specialist Clear Induction program must be completed prior to the student being awarded these 6 units, and will be evaluated for credit hour compliance. These 6 units can only be used towards the Advanced Methodology emphasis area.
