How Agenda supports providers in the Early Childhood Ancillary Certificate process

  1. We provide guidance and information about the process to teachers and directors. Review our helpful list of links below to get started.
  2. For teachers who are not required to obtain their training from a BESE-approved provider, we can provide a transcript review, advice about where to obtain additional training, portfolio development support and assistance in locating a Professional Development Specialist. Contact your local Agenda office to learn more.
  3. Agenda is a BESE-approved provider. Our program is currently on hiatus, but we hope to offer another course soon! Click here if you'd like to be notified about our next application process.
