 Program Overview

PCOE Leadership and Learning Collaborative

The PCOE Leadership and Learning Collaborative (LLC) Education Specialist Credential Intern Programs offer two areas of concentration: The Mild/Moderate or Moderate/Severe programs. Both are accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and are designed to prepare future education specialists in Placer County.​

The Preservice requirement is six months long with cohorts beginning each January. The two-year Intern Program follows the preservice and combines practical, relevant coursework with on-site support provided through a collaborative partnership between the PCOE Learning and Leadership Collaborative and each participating school district. We recognize that our candidates bring a wealth of experiences to the program and have designed our courses to link educational theory with best instructional practices.

Our teachers are employed as Intern teachers during the day and participate in credential classes two times per week (one in-class and one online) while receiving ongoing coaching from a Faculty Coach and a District Coach. 
All candidates in Intern Programs must meet the same standards for teacher preparation as those found in a traditional college or university setting. This includes the demonstration of subject matter proficiency and completion of all prerequisites and coursework.

    Assessment Capable Learners Event

    We all know that collective efficacy is the new number one influence on students’ learning. And there is good reason for that. In part, efficacious teachers ensure that their students are assessment-capable, which means that students understand their current level of performance and compare that with the desired level of learning.

    Join us on February 5, 2020 for our Assessment Capable Learners event.
