Hi, I'm sorry if this is the wrong category to post this thread in! I'm in the process of finishing up my Bachelor's degree and I want to become a teacher in California. I have already researched the requirements for a preliminary credential and am well versed there. I know that it's valid for a max of 5 years and you need to obtain the clear credential through a teacher induction program. I know it's going to sound like I'm asking about this so early in my credential journey but: Where exactly do I do one of those programs? It's my understanding that you need to have a teaching job in order to do it, but is the program through your place of employment? Or is the program through a university the way the preliminary credential is?
