Special Alert: California Needs Bilingual Teachers!

After Proposition 58 passed in November 2016, the demand for bilingual teachers in California has risen sharply. Nearly 14% of the state’s school districts report shortages, according to a Learning Policy Institute Fact Sheet.

Obtaining a bilingual authorization allows teachers to meet the needs of English learners in various instructional settings and to teach in California’s bilingual programs.

A bilingual authorization may be earned by examination or by completion of one of CSU’s CTC-approved bilingual programs. This authorization may be earned concurrently with or after earning a preliminary teaching credential. Click here for more information about the bilingual authorization.

Special Alert: California Needs Special Education Teachers!

Most school districts in California are hiring special education teachers. That means qualified teachers can find a job almost anywhere in the state.
