Creating Education Programs | Accreditation


On October 22, 2010, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) voted to form a new accrediting body: the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Accreditation is a nongovernmental activity based on peer review that serves the dual functions of assuring quality and promoting improvement. 

CAEP's mission is to CAEP advance excellence in educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning.

Ohio Administrative Code establishes accreditation as a pre-requisite to educator licensure preparation program approval in Ohio.
