Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)




The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) will ensure that educator preparation providers (EPPs) prepare and graduate future teachers who know the content of the subject(s) they will teach, know how to teach that content effectively to students from diverse groups, and demonstrate their positive impact on P-12 student learning in diverse school settings. CAEP will ensure that other school professionals have the knowledge and skills to support the academic and social development of all students. CAEP will ensure that EPPs collect, analyze and use evidence of candidate learning to improve the preparation program. CAEP will ensure that EPPs have the capacity, resources and practices to support candidate learning.
