Welcome to the CETE web site


Consortium for Excellence in Teacher Education

CETE is an association of teacher education programs in selective, private liberal arts colleges and universities located in the Northeast.

Our graduates are some of the finest teaching candidates in the country. Please click on the "Graduates" menu item to find out how to hire graduates from CETE programs.

A number of CETE programs offer opportunities for graduate study, and a new initiative called the Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) is a master’s program in education that recruits, prepares, and supports talented, committed individuals to teach in the Boston Public Schools.
