TEACHING THE TEACHERS
Teaching the Teachers workshops gives educators the chance to experience what future opportunities for work and education await their students in the business world. We invite you to help us build a world-class workforce. Businesses get the chance to meet educators and educators get the chance to share what they learn with their students.
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.
