Outside Opportunities 

Preparing quality teachers to transform schools

In partnership with the RESC Alliance, the CT Teacher Residency Program (TRP) is seeking District Partners for the 23-24 class for this revolutionary method of recruiting, retaining, training and certifying teachers of color. TRP is a “grow-your-own” model that minimizes barriers to traditional certification program admission while engaging Residents in a full-time Residency model with pay and benefits. 

This year, we have 49 Residents enrolled in the 18 month alternate route Elementary TRP program in the ACES, CES, CREC and LEARN regions. We are looking to have spots for up to 75 elementary teachers in the class of 23-24 as well as offering a newly CSDE approved Comprehensive SPED  Pilot for 15 students with a few existing partner districts.

Partnering districts join together with their RESC to create a cohort of teacher trainees (residents) who work in the district with a mentor teacher and take classes with others in the cohort.
