California Teachers of English Learners (CTEL) and Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development (CLAD) Certificate Program
Almost a quarter of students attending school across the United States speak another language at home.* By day they speak English, by night they may speak a myriad of other languages and dialects. And you are the bridge in between.
With a CTEL/CLAD Certification from Alliant International University’s California School of Education, you will be armed with the knowledge needed to ensure your student has a hand to hold as they cross that bridge of communication.
Just four classes in less than six months will help bring you up to speed on the lessons, assessments, and methods to make sure your bilingual students have the support they need to succeed in class. Alliant’s California Commission on Teacher Credentialing-approved CLAD certification program is offered in a flexible, online format that more than 1,000 other teachers have used to earn the certification they need to support their students.
