Central Carolina Teaching Initiative
About

The Central Carolina Teaching Initiative (CCTI) is an accelerated alternative NC teacher licensure program. The CCTI program offers recent college graduates and mid-career professionals who hold bachelors degrees in non-teaching areas the opportunity to become licensed North Carolina teachers. CCTI coursework is administered through a blended model of face-to-face classes and online modules. CCTI is a state-approved Educator Preparation Program for those looking to earn their license through the Residency Pathway. Participants complete all program requirements while teaching full-time in their districts. Upon successful completion of the 1-year CCTI program and required assessments, participants are eligible for their Initial North Carolina Professional License. We work under a cohort model where teachers across multiple districts come together to share experiences, learn together, and grow with each other’s support. Each of our CCTI teachers is coached throughout the year receiving one-on-one support.
