Teacher Education Centres of Excellence

In 2011 under the National Partnership for Improving Teacher Quality, five Teacher Education Centres of Excellence (TECE) were established to improve the professional experience component of initial teacher education programs. In 2014, a sixth TECE was established in Logan.
