The purpose of the CTE-CEEP program is to support the implementation of the administrative code requirements adopted by the State Board, first in 2008 and revised in 2016, for all Certificate of Eligibility (CE) teacher preparation programs. The requirements include a more rigorous and extensive pre-professional experience of 50 hours, an increase in the hours of formal instruction to 350 hours, and an increase in the overall duration of the program from one year to two years. To meet these requirements a more comprehensive two-year curriculum has been designed and is being implemented to serve CTE CE candidates throughout the state. Recognizing that county vocational school districts (CVSDs) already provide high quality professional development and support activities to new teachers, the CTE CEEP has been designed to deliver the program in two ways: 1. Traditional Model: All 400 hours of instruction are provided at the Institution of Higher Education (IHE) for all CTE teacher candidates employed in comprehensive high schools and non-participating county vocational schools; and 2. Partnership Model: For CTE teachers at the partnering county vocational school districts only, up to 150 hours may be provided at the employing CVSD. The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has established a five-year grant program. The CTECEEP Year 5 continuation NGO is open to Brookdale Community College; the grantee selected through a competitive process in Year 1. The eligible applicant may apply for up to $190.000. Based on the availability of FY21 federal Perkins funds, this fifth year of this grant program will begin July 1, 2021 and will end on June 30, 2022.
