NCATE Transition to CAEP

The Standards

In November 2010, NCATE merged with the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) to become the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), combining the two premiere accrediting organizations as a single accrediting agency for reform, innovation, and research in educator preparation.

As a result of the merger, five CAEP Standards were developed and adopted in 2013. The new standards include:

In 2016, the CAEP board approved new standards for advanced level programs.  Advanced-level programs are defined by CAEP as educator preparation programs at the post-baccalaureate or graduate levels leading to licensure, certification, or endorsement. Advanced-level programs are designed to develop P-12 teachers who have already completed an initial preparation program, currently licensed administrators, other certificated school professionals for employment in P-12 schools/districts.
