Permit Holders Professional Development Series

partners

NCSOE’s Permit Holder Professional Development Series, in partnership with accredited School Districts, provides Permit Holders employed as a “teacher of record” support and specialized training that meets the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing’s (CCTC) requirements and responsibilities for employing teachers who hold a Provisional Intern Permit (PIP) or a Short Term Staff Permit (STSP) and their Mentors.

Through participation in NCSOE’s program, the district/school site assigns each Permit Holder a site-based Mentor who assists the Permit Holder in developing their personalized professional development plan.

NCSOE requires Permit Holders to engage in 144 hours per year of support and supervision (plus an additional 45 hours in support of English Learners). Permit Holders accumulate these hours through work with their Mentors and by participating in district-sponsored professional development.

Mentors play a critical role in the Permit Holder’s success. Their individualized coaching and “just in time” support are essential in guiding them through the process of developing their teaching practice. NCSOE supports Mentors by providing standards-based training grounded in theoretical research that builds upon the Mentor’s knowledge and skills.

Upon completion of the personal professional development plan and meeting licensure requirements, the Permit Holder would then apply to an education preparation program, or upon passing state tests, would be recommended by their credential agency to the CCTC for their California Preliminary Credential.
