Welcome to the Council on Teacher Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago!

The Council on Teacher Education (CTE) is the professional education unit for the University of Illinois at Chicago.  CTE oversees the 21 programs that prepare teachers, school leaders, and school service personnel for licensure by the state of Illinois.  The three major responsibility areas of CTE are (1) licensure of candidates; (2) accreditation of professional education programs; and (3) supervision of pre-service field experiences.  CTE provides services to students, faculty, college and campus administration, and the state of Illinois.

The CTE serves programs in the College of Education, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts, the College of Nursing, and the Jane Addams College of Social Work.
