The Teacher Externship Program is helping to bridge the gap between the classroom and the world of work by bringing teachers into the workplace for one week. The externships take place during the summer months or during the school breaks and teachers have the opportunity to incorporate this knowledge into lesson plans for their students.

What can the externship offer the teachers?

  • A “Real World” work experience in a new field
  • Increased knowledge and understanding of business trends and workplace cultures
  • Information about skills and competencies that are needed in order to be successful in today’s workplace.
  • The opportunity to develop subject expertise and to gather information and resources to aid in curriculum development.

What can it provide for the employer?

  • The opportunity to work with educators to insure that their present workforce development needs are understood.
  • Assistance in developing a special project.
  • Increased knowledge and understanding of the educational environment.
  • The opportunity to work cooperatively with educators to impact the future workforce.
