TEACH Colorado is a dynamic platform that consolidates all the information and services you need to get licensed to teach in Colorado. To do this, we work closely with regional partners who care as deeply about education as we do.
These organizations—like the Colorado Association of School Executives, the Colorado Center for Rural Education and the Colorado Education Association to name a few—provide expert support, research and advice.
Other partners include the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and the Colorado Workforce Development Council, helping the TEACH Colorado team stay informed and connected to what’s happening on the ground for professional educators.
