Welcome to The Center



NCCPEP provides support to advance high-quality clinical educator preparation through capacity-building, partnership development, and by bringing research to practice within local contexts.


We, as educators, must empower ourselves to craft our professional narrative, one that celebrates our pedagogical expertise and positions our voices as the best advocates for our nation's children, and the teachers who will nurture them, unapologetically, and boldly.


Are you a licensure program leader? We are seeking feedback on modern clinical practice. By completing our survey, you will help us in our mission to put clinical practice at the center of teacher education.


In partnership with the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER), we are hosting a three-day conference in Cincinnati Ohio starting November 3rd. We welcome all educators to participate. Please visit the NNER website for more details.


The mission of The Center is to establish, sustain, and advance clinical practice in educator preparation through school, university, and community partnerships.


Grounded in partnership, clinical practice will be the nucleus (The Center) in the enterprise of educator preparation.
