In 2010, NCATE and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) initiated a transition into a new, merged teacher education accrediting body for U.S. teacher preparation programs. The result of that merger is the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). CAEP enures the preparation of highly qualified educators through the accreditation of programs in which data drives decisions; resources and practices support candidate learning; and candidates demonstrate knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions geared toward raising student achievement.
