Center for Teacher Education


Brief Introduction

To provide students interested in becoming educators opportunities to gain real-world teaching experience, in 1995 the University established a teacher education program and admitted the first class of students. In 1997, the Center for Teacher Education (CFTE) was formally established to administer the program. Each year, the teacher education program is made available to a total of 100 of the University’s undergraduate and graduate students. In 2000, the Center set up the Elementary School Education Program, with spaces available for 45 of the University’s students. The Center was commissioned by the Hsinchu City Government to offer the Training Program for Prospective Principals in Hsinchu City Elementary and Junior High Schools, in the 1998 and 2000 academic years, and the Post-Baccalaureate Secondary School Teacher (In-Service Training) Program during the 1999 academic year, through which a total of 78 substitute teachers successfully obtained teaching qualifications. During the 2000 academic year, the Center offered the Post-Baccalaureate Secondary School Teacher (Pre-Service) Accreditation Program, enrolling 90 students. On August 1, 2006 in accordance with legal regulations governing teacher education, the Center was renamed the Center for Teacher Education. In 2007, the teacher education program for elementary schools was ended.
