Teacher Externships

Workforce Solutions Capital Area is partnering with local school districts on a weeklong Teacher Externship Program for summer 2022!


The Teacher Externship Program will connect 100 school teachers and counselors with employers in high-demand industries. Teachers and counselors will be hosted by employers for at least three days in which they are able to observe and speak to employees about the skills, certifications, and career pathways within the company. After the externship, teachers are required to create lesson plans based on their experiences, which they can then use in the classroom. 

Watch our short video highlighting some of the companies and teachers who participated in last summer’s externship program.
