The most important way you can support students is by giving them the time necessary to complete PREP activities and discussing the student’s progress. You may also choose to take an active role with CPLED as a assessor, practice manager, or facilitator.

Before the start of each phase of PREP, we will be contacting principals via email with general background information about that phase, as well as the time commitment required of their student, and all deadlines. Specific communications will be sent to principals only if their student is not progressing to the next phase in PREP or if they are unsuccessful at the Capstone. However, we encourage principals to make inquiries regarding progress with the student directly.
For more information on when we will contact principals refer to the Policy regarding information provided to principals.
Students will be provided with access to Procertas once they have completed registration and paid their tuition fees. Procertas is a learning technology assessment tool and must be completed before students will receive access to phase one, Foundation Modules. The Foundation Modules will be available for release in early June or December.
Students are encouraged to apply early for registration to get a head start on the program as well as to select their desired face-to-face sessions.
