Educator preparation program earns full accreditation
Hanover College’s Educator Preparation Program has been awarded full accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
CAEP is a globally recognized accrediting body for educator preparation for aspiring teachers of students ranging from preschool through high school. The non-profit and non-governmental agency strives to assure that new teachers know their subjects and students and possess clinical training for effective teaching upon entry into the classroom.
The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation utilizes peer review to assure quality and promote improvement. The entity’s unified accreditation system provides a framework to encourage continual self-assessment and evidence-based analysis of programs and their effectiveness.
Formed in 2010, CAEP was created through a consolidation of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, founded in 1954, and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (1997). Since 2013, the organization has served as the sole accrediting body for educator preparation providers. To date, CAEP has accredited nearly 600 providers, spanning 43 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.
