Teaching the Teachers workshops gives educators the chance to attend a workshop hosted by a local business to learn about the careers and relevant skills students need to open a pathway to their future career. Businesses open their offices to share a real-life look at their organization, the types of careers they employ, and the training required to successfully work in their industry. We invite you to help us build a world-class talent pipeline. 

Workshops are open to all teachers, advisors, college & career readiness counselors, administrators in NEWESD 101. A minimum of three clock hours are provided to each attendee.


Why Should Businesses Participate?

  • A talented workforce is key to the success of your business. This is your opportunity to connect with educators to communicate the skills and education your industry and business requires.
  • Educators get an inside look at an array of local career opportunities for their students and a better understanding of the kinds of jobs that employers are looking to fill.
  • There is a need for the workforce of the future to have STEM competency and soft skills such as teamwork, analysis, critical thought, inquiry, problem solving and communication. These workshops give educators the opportunity to learn more about how these skills are applied in the business world.
