什么是亚太经合组织? 

The Alternative Pathways to Educator Certification program, 称为亚太经合组织, is ideal for career changers and employees of our partnering school districts who are interested in teacher certification but need a program that supports working adults. Our coursework, classroom experiences, and 指导 prepare students to become successful teachers.

为课堂成功做准备

"APEC did an outstanding job preparing me for my classroom. I have been told several times during observations that it is obvious that APEC pours a lot into their Fellows and provides extensive opportunities during the residency."

"哥伦比亚大学's success in preparing teachers through its approved traditional preparation programs suggests that the APEC Center is well-positioned to provide quality professional development, 指导, and support for candidates pursuing certification."
