Examples from States and Communities

  • California Early Childhood Educator Competencies
    • These Performance Areas of Adult Learning and Coaching focus on the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to facilitate the professional learning and growth of early childhood educators. Because of the focus on adults, these two Performance Areas pertain to the skills and knowledge that are necessary to guide adult learners, rather than young children. These can provide state leaders an example of the specific competency areas needed to provide high quality coaching and serve as an example of how California has defined these competencies.
