The organisation stated in the announcement that a photonics cPPP will:
The Photonics21 cPPP was ranked first out of the 10 existing cPPPs, by an independent expert group, during the mid-term review of the contractual public private partnerships under Horizon 2020.
The current Photonics21 partnership (cPPP) has demonstrated a very high (more than four) leverage factor with respect to private-to-public funding, as recently highlighted by digital technology association, DigitalEurope.
The Photonics21 cPPP has played a key role in creating a network of national photonics associations and prototyping and pilot production networks, which are now strongly engaged in the development of sustainable regional and national competitiveness photonics policy and ecosystems.
The CPPP uses the NSBECS as the foundation to ensure that candidates develop proficiency in those identified Catholic competencies for school leadership, in addition to meeting all of the requirements for state licensure.
GCCE aligned the CPPP to the NSBECS using the 20 Catholic School Principal Competencies which were derived from the NSBECS (see Figure 1) and leveraging Ignatian pedagogy for candidates to engage in reflective practice.
The CPPP uses the NSBECS to frame the field experiences, ensuring candidates have multiple opportunities throughout their program to engage in meaningful job-embedded learning across the four NSBECS domains.
Field experiences serve a central role in the CPPP and are infused throughout the coursework and internships.
The GCCE CPPP has just welcomed its fifth cohort since the program's implementation in 2013.
In addition to the ePortfolio artifacts and reflections, the CPPP tracks student growth through recurring standards-based feedback provided to the candidates and their program advisor by their coach and the site principal supervising their internships.
CPPP graduates' familiarity with, and deep understanding of the NSBECS in action, ensures they are fully prepared to effectively implement and lead the continuous improvement processes that are part of the AdvancED system level accreditation of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
