The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education is a non-profit, non-governmental alliance of 33 national professional education and public organizations representing millions of Americans who support quality teaching.
NCATE currently accredits 632 colleges of education with 78 more seeking NCATE accreditation. NCATE accreditation is a mark of distinction, and provides recognition that the college of education has met national professional standards for the preparation of teachers and other educators.
In NCATE's performance-based accreditation system, institutions must provide evidence of competent teacher candidate performance. Teacher candidates must know the subject matter they plan to teach and how to teach effectively so that all students learn.
NCATE makes a difference in teacher preparation. Prepared teachers make a difference in P–12 student learning. Study after study indicates that student achievement increases when teachers are fully prepared and fully licensed.
The U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation recognize NCATE as an accrediting body for schools, colleges, and departments of education.
