Teaching the Teachers

Teaching the Teachers workshops give educators the opportunity to tour and visit local businesses to learn about careers and skills students need to be successful. Participating businesses share a real-life look at their organization, the types of careers they employ, and the training required to successfully work in their industry. Workshops are open to all teachers, advisors, college & career readiness counselors, and administrators in NEWESD 101. 

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.
