Candidates going through the full candidate process—Take One!, Re-Take, and Renewal candidates—have access to facilitators.
Universities and school districts hire facilitators to support candidates through the certification process.
To ensure consistency across the state, facilitators are asked to take Facilitator Training prior to hosting a cohort group. To hone facilitation knowledge and skills, additional specialty trainings are recommended. OSPI offers facilitation professional development.
Current Facilitator Training options are:
