Strong Workforce Program

2017-2018 l Highlights Report

Project Name: Teacher Preparation/STEM-CTE

Target Population: K-12 and Community College

Students in the Education Pathway with a particular

focus on STEM-CTE.

Type of Program: Continuing

Program Start Date: 2016

Sector: Education-Across Sectors

Regional Partners/Stakeholders: Community

Colleges (Los Angeles Region), K-12 school districts,

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.


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


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.

Key Performance Indicators Achieved Based on 2017-18 Outcomes Report*

*Quarterly internal report submitted by TPP colleges to the Collaborative project lead.



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


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



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
