Approved English Learner Professional Development Programs

A selection of professional development providers have been initially approved by CDE to offer programs that satisfy the new requirements for professionally licensed teachers endorsed in elementary, math, science, social studies, and English.  Educators who complete one of the approved programs will receive a single certificate of completion that can be submitted with the professional license renewal application in order to receive the English Learner Professional Development designation on the professional license.  This list is regularly updated as programs may apply for CDE approval at any time.

To access the list of school districts, BOCES, institutes of higher education, non-profit organizations, and independent consultants that have been approved by CDE to offer English Learner Professional Development, you can download an Excel file here.  This downloadable Excel file includes contact information and program descriptions not listed below.
