CCALA Trainer Approval System
The CCALA Trainer Approval System is also a prominent feature of the Gateways for Early Educators program.
The Child Care Alliance of Los Angeles (CCALA) believes that consistent standards for trainers promote high quality training and help early childhood professionals with finding and choosing training opportunities. The Trainer Approval System verifies and ensures high quality trainers for the workshops provided across Los Angeles County through the Resource and Referral (R&R) agencies.
Gateways for Early Educators™ features comprehensive training in various early childhood education topic areas aligned with the California ECE Competencies. With over 40 years of experience offering training and support to all types of child care providers, including family child care, center-based, and licensed-exempt providers, the Child Care Alliance agencies together are one of the largest training vendors in the state.
Registry Trainer Approval
The Trainer Approval process gives trainers the opportunity to show they have experience and formal education in early childhood, as well as knowledge of adult learning principles and experience presenting workshops and training sessions to diverse adult learners and early childhood professionals. Trainer Approval is required of trainers who are interested in conducting trainings for any one of the CCALA Resource and Referral (R&R) agencies. Once approved, Trainers will set up a Trainer Profile on the California ECE Workforce Registry.
