California Center on Teaching Careers

The California Center on Teaching Careers (the Center) is a statewide agency tasked with recruiting and retaining teachers for California. We work with school districts, county offices of education, and colleges/universities to combat the impacts of the teacher shortage by advocating for the profession, increasing the candidate pool for all teacher preparation programs, and recruiting credentialed teachers for California's school districts.

We do this through regional and statewide virtual teacher recruitment fairs, through an interactive vortal that matches teachers and teacher candidates with school districts or credential programs, and through three university-partnered programs to help teachers and social workers obtain their degrees and employment.
