Another Educator in the Workplace Opportunity
What is it?
A group of K-12 educators, in Tioga County, will be selected to explore three local industries during the 2019-2020 school year. Educators can choose to participate in all three site visits or just ones of interest. They will learn through employer-led tours describing the various occupations in the company, the skills needed to perform the job tasks, and the training needed for these positions.
Each of these Educator in the Workplace days will be followed by a day of curriculum planning, so educators can begin implementing curriculum adjustments based on industry feedback immediately. These curriculum sessions will include speakers from career-related community organizations and post-secondary institutions as well as collaboration and development time.
Because educators come from all three school districts, there will be a team-building day at the ropes course (with respect to your comfort level!). Previous participants are welcome to sign up again but preference will be given to those who haven’t participated in the program yet.
