The Orange County Department of Education Teacher Induction Program (formerly BTSA)
provides a two-year Induction Program to educators employed as public and private school teachers throughout Orange County. Our mission is to support beginning teachers in their acquisition of the knowledge, skills, and core values necessary to become highly qualified professionals who effectively impact student achievement.
The Induction Program is delivered through:
individualized support provided weekly through face-to-face sessions facilitated by an NTC-trained mentor; and
additional support provided by "just-in-time" content experts; and
professional development designed specifically for newly-credentialed, beginning teachers.
A CTC-approved, two-year induction program is the preferred pathway to securing a California Clear Multiple and/or Single Subject teaching credential. All program participants are supported by a community of professional educators, that includes program specialists, instructors with targeted content expertise, mentors and fellow participating teachers who collaborate monthly during district-sponsored Network Meetings.
