Beginning Teacher Program

Making a difference in children's education through teacher professional development.


The LACOE Beginning Teacher Programs offers credential programs and professional development opportunities for both general education and special education teachers. In collaboration with 12 local public school districts and 20 charter schools, LACOE BTP provides a District Intern Program and Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment Induction Program (BTSA) for eligible teacher candidates and classroom teachers seeking full California certification.

We also support teachers by offering an Added Autism Authorization program as well as Subject Matter Preparation for the Algebra and Geometry California Subject Examinations Test.
