What is Induction?

Induction is the period of support and professional development for a teacher with a California Preliminary Credential. The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and the California Department of Education (CDE) require the completion of an Induction program to fulfill the requirements for the California Clear Single Subject and Education Specialist Credentials. New Induction standards adopted in 2016 require programs to provide a two-year, individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support and professional learning that begins in the teacher’s first year of teaching.
