Teacher Externships

Workforce Solutions Capital Area is partnering with local school districts on a 3-day Teacher Externship Program for summer 2021!


In June, Workforce Solutions Capital Area will connect 100 teachers and counselors from AISD, Del Valle, Elgin, Manor and Pflugerville ISDs with three-day externships. During the externship, an employer provides a teacher or counselor with the invaluable opportunity to observe and speak to employees, including management, about the skills, certifications, and career pathways within the employer host’s organization. After completing their externships, the teachers must create lesson plans based on their experiences, which they can then use in the classroom.

Benefits to participating:
  • Strengthen relationships with local school districts to connect with the next generation of skilled talent

  • Help educators connect industry with the classroom to support student’s in developing academic and technical skills required for the workforce

  • Connect your employees with community engagement opportunities

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