Teacher Certification and Highly QualifiedOnline Work-based Learning Training: http://www.teawbltraining.org/
This online training course is designed to introduce basic laws, rules, and procedures relevant to teaching courses at the secondary school level in Texas that involve work-based learning. Because state and federal laws change frequently, it is also designed to teach instructors who are coordinating work-based learning experiences how to find current laws, rules, and guidelines related to work-based learning.
Work-based learning covers a wide range of occupations, worksites, and students. It is beyond the scope of this course to provide in-depth training for teaching every possible course or situation involving work-based learning. Its purpose is to provide an introduction to fundamental concepts with links to additional resources useful to teachers assigned to career preparation or practicum courses.Texas Administrative Code on Certifications - broken down by Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates (click below link to see categories):ESSA (Every Student Successes Act) Has replaced NCLB (No Child Left Behind)CTE teachers assigned to a CTE class that counts for core credit are not required to be Highly Qualified.
