Teaching the Teachers is an opportunity for businesses and educators to connect and discuss what the future of the business world looks like for students. Through a three-hour workshop that is hosted and led by a local business, educators are exposed to the various career paths and opportunities that await their students.

Businesses: Talented workers are crucial for your business to be successful. By hosting a Teaching the Teachers workshop, you have an opportunity to showcase your company to educators by highlighting the types of jobs available in your company as well as what skills are the most vital to your industry. The knowledge shared is then used by the educators to better prepare their students for an ever-changing, dynamic job market.

Educators: You want to equip your students to be successful.  By attending a Teaching the Teachers workshop, you will learn about what career paths are available to your students including what skills businesses are specifically looking for. You can then share that information with your students to get them excited and prepared for their future career. These workshops also provide clock hour credits for professional development to those that attend.
