Continuing Education for Educators

CAPE Programs for Educators

Continuing and Professional Education (CAPE)

The School of Education has partnered with CAPE to offer flexible, inclusive, professional development programs for busy educators.

These programs are developed with faculty from the School of Education, who draw upon their scholarly research and practical experience to provide you with relevant, real-world content and resources.

Whether you're looking to fulfill requirements for licensure renewal, learn a new skill, or expand your knowledge in a particular content area, CAPE is here for you.

At the School of Education, we believe in lifelong learning. We’re excited to partner with St. Thomas' Continuing and Professional Education courses (CAPE) to provide professional development for individuals who are interested in becoming teachers, and to extend the learning of current educators and leaders in our K-12 schools and universities.
