About Us

The NCCPEP is the first national organization focused exclusively on clinical practice in teacher preparation. We are dedicated to improving the preparation of future teachers to ensure they are equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the classroom.

Our agency offers a variety of services to support teacher preparation programs, including curriculum development support, professional development opportunities, and mentorship programs. We work closely with schools, universities, and other education organizations to design and implement programs that meet the unique needs of their students and faculty.
