CSU/UC systems, community-based organizations,


industry sectors

The Challenge: *Please describe the problem


being addressed and why it is important.






California and the rest of the nation have been

experiencing an ongoing teacher shortage. A teacher


shortage is even direr when it comes to STEM and


career and technical education. The Teacher


Preparation/ STEM-CTE Regional Strong Workforce


Program project in the Los Angeles region aims at


fostering the next generation of teachers. Teacher


preparation programs provide ongoing support to


students interested in pursuing a teaching career. An

emphasis is placed on STEM and CTE opportunities


being addressed and why it is crucial.


















PAGE 2

The Data: *Please describe data used to frame


the problem, including sector burden and


economic costs.





The teacher shortage problem is not new and has


been an ongoing issue for years. However, the


teacher shortage has been more prominent in


recent years due to several reasons: the increase in


student enrollment, the decline in teacher


preparation programs that lead to teacher


credentials, the fast-growing careers in STEM and

CTE fields, and the inevitable increasing numbers of


teacher retirements. The number of students


enrolling in the school systems far outweighs the


number of teachers entering the workforce. In


California, 80% of the K-12 school districts report


that they are experiencing teacher shortages and

have only been getting worse. Between 2016-2017,


the number of teaching credentials awarded was far


below the number of teaching positions open in


California. It is predicted that in the coming years,


that need will only increase remarkably.

Program Outcomes: * Please summarize the


problem, program/activity, and student


outcomes.





Teacher Preparation/STEM-CTE project implements


various programs and offers services that ultimately


address the teacher shortage issue and aim to


bridge the gap. The main program opportunities


outside the myriad of student services provided by


this Strong Workforce Program regional project

include the mentorship programs, dual-enrollment,


teacher preparation program workshops, and bi-


annual conferences.






The Teach Los Angeles Regional Collaborative


collectively achieved the following SWP-aligned


metrics in their 2017-18 Outcomes report.*

For course enrollment: 15,211 students and for


course completion 7,600 (50%).




*internal quarterly report submitted by TPP colleges to the

Collaborative project lead.

The number of students that attained 12 CTE units


was 8,941. The number of students that completed a


certificate was 1,673, and 758 completed a degree.


The number of students that applied for a child

development certificate was 1,609. Two students


attained 48 hours of non-credit instructional times.


Lastly, there were a total of 334 students that


transferred to a 4-year university. As a whole, the


Regional Collaborative achieved 13,189 data points


that fall under the key performance indicators of the

SWP-aligned metrics. The table below summarizes


the data points.

Mentorships:






The mentorship program matches students with


instructional faculty for a semester of shadowing. The

program's premise is that it allows students


interested in teaching to get real-life experience in


the educational setting. Both student and faculty


create a lesson plan that notes what the student


wants to get out of the experience. After completing


the 30-hour program, the student would have


acquired first-hand knowledge of what it means to

teach. For example, last year alone, the program at


Rio Hondo provided the opportunity for 77 students


interested in teaching to shadow instructional faculty


for 30 hours a semester. Within the year, Rio


Hondo's TeAM mentorship program collected 2,310


student and faculty service hours.

Teacher Preparation Program Workshops:






Every semester, TPP colleges create workshop


opportunities that engage students. The workshops


cover topics that provide support for student

achievement inside and outside the classroom


setting. The workshops are facilitated by a diverse


selection of professionals from the community and


focus on encouraging and nurturing student


success.



Examples of workshops offered:


CBEST Math Prep Workshop, Rio Hondo College

Pathways to Teaching Careers, LA Mission College


Men of Color in Education, Long Beach City College

School-Age Emphasis Child Development Permit


Workshop, El Camino College

The Path to Becoming a CTE-STEM Teacher-Many Roads,


Many Voices, Compton College

CBEST Prep Workshop, Citrus College

Regional Teacher Conferences:





In the past two quarters, two conferences have been


offered, including the in-person Regional Teacher


Conference and the Virtual Teacher and Future


Educators Workshop Series.






The Innovation & Teaching in the 21st Century


regional teacher conference was a unique


opportunity for students and faculty to learn from

experienced professionals in several fields. The


conference provided its participants with an array of


workshops aimed at encouraging, galvanizing, and


supporting the existing and next generation of


educators. The conference hosted by Rio Hondo

College provided opportunities for more than 200


students and 100 faculty. The highly successful


conference made available 18 different breakout


session workshops and introduced networking


opportunities with professionals well-versed in their


fields.

The Teachers and Future Educators Virtual


Workshop Series' purpose was to provide resources


and opportunities for professional development to


teachers and future educators remotely due to


COVID-19. A total of 33 virtual workshops taught by

well-versed professionals were offered that covered


a versatile array of education topics geared towards


supporting current educators and students


interested in pursuing teaching as a career. More


than 1,000 students and teachers learned about


education programs and had questions answered

about requirements and curriculum in partnership


with neighboring colleges and universities. Overall


the display and execution of the virtual "Teacher and


Future Educators Workshop Series" was successful


and well-received by its attendees. 94% of the


participants felt satisfied with the virtual workshop


series' performance, and 96% of the participants

noted interest in participating in the next workshop


series.
