Types of Credit

  • Project Enlightenment Teacher Workshops have concluded for the 2023-2024 school year!  Check back in mid-August for the 2024-2025 brochure of workshop listings!

    Special Note: Project Enlightenment is offering virtual and in-person workshops for teachers of young children. Each workshop will occur for two hours. Therefore, upon completion of each workshop, a participant will earn 0.2 credit towards Teacher Renewal (CEU) or Staff Development Credit. Certificates will be emailed upon completion of a virtual workshop and provided as a hard copy following an in-person workshop. For questions about credit, email peworkshops@wcpss.net.

    Credit Options: The teacher workshops listed on this site have been approved by the Wake County Public School System, the Council for Early Childhood Professional Recognition, and by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Child Development and Early Education for the following types of credit:
