National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)
NCATE is the teaching profession’s mechanism to help to establish high quality teacher, specialist, and administrator preparation. Their performance-based system of accreditation fosters competent classroom teachers and other educators who work to improve the education of all P-12 students.
Wayne State College is accredited under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards through the CAEP Accreditation System, for a period of seven years, from 2010 to 2017. Wayne State College will seek accreditation under the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Standards in Spring 2017. Formed in 2013, CAEP is the single specialized accreditor for educator preparation, and administers NCATE accreditation. The next reaffirmation will be in 2017.
