Instructor Credentialing

Instructor Credentialing

Research studies prove that the quality of instruction has the greatest impact on student performance. As a result, federal and state agencies and other national organizations, require higher standards for instructors. Since 2012, the CCR Professional Development Team has offered a process and credentialing system to train instructors in evidence-based teaching methodologies. These include the learning philosophies and frameworks that are unique to adult education and literacy activities.

The credentialing courses and credentialing process funded through the NC Community College System are accessible to all full or part-time basic skills instructors or community-based volunteers. The CORE Credential, ASE Language Arts, and ASE Math courses are offered 100% online via the NCCC Virtual Learning Community.

The CORE, ASE Language Arts, and ASE Math courses are ten-week, online, asynchronous courses with scheduled assignments due every week. All prospective students of these credentialing courses are required to complete an application for a scholarship to participate in the course.

Scholarship applicants must commit to spending approximately three hours per week completing the required assignments by the weekly due date. Applicants must also commit to completing the course by the course end date.

Once you have discussed your professional development goals with your program director, you may submit a scholarship application. Scholarship links will be open to receive applications approximately six weeks prior to the start of each course.
