Building and Supporting Relationships, Equity and Student Success
Through Personalized Professional Learning

  • Acquire tools and skills that enhance and deepen understanding with “take-aways” that can be immediately applied directly to the classroom or mentoring setting.
  • Attend customized classes, offering online, face-to-face, and virtual options.
  • Choose from a variety of course topics ranging from CSTP-based, social emotional learning, and technology techniques to specific mentoring skills and standards-based training.


The North Coast Teacher Induction Program (NCTIP) is a two-year, state-accredited Induction program designed for Preliminary Education Specialist , Multiple Subject and Single Subject credential holders. Each credential has a unique set of standards that must be met in order to obtain a California Clear Credential. Successful completion of NCTIP and any additional credential requirements leads to a California Clear Credential.

With the support of a trained Mentor and self-directed, inquiry-focused professional learning, Candidates reflect on and refine their teaching practice through a California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) lens while they develop strategies and innovative pedagogy for today’s classroom environment.

Mentors play a critical role in the success of new teachers. Their individualized coaching and “just in time” support are essential in guiding Candidates through the process of deepening the teaching practice of the CSTP. NCTIP supports Mentors by providing standards-based training grounded in theoretical research throughout the year that builds upon the Mentor’s knowledge and skills.
